Default installation problem?

I have installed turbotax 2012 on my window vista home computer. The icon shows up on my desktop, but when I click on the icon, I am getting a window (I think with a security symbol beside it) and a message Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropraite permission to access this item. What do I do??

That typically means that the path to the original application is lost. You should have a copy of the icon in your menu. Go to the Windows start button and drop down the menu and choose the program - Turbotax 2012. Does it run? If it does, you're fine and all you need is to either create a new icon that points to the program or fix this one. If Turbotax doesn't run it could mean that the program is no longer on the machine or there are other problems.
