Without seeing the URL or file or link you are check, I can only guess: do you 
happen to have a link somewhere in your document that points to some file on 
your C: drive?  That could be one possible culprit - replace it with a real 
URL as it will be seen on the web, or if you really intend to point to a file 
on your C: drive, use a proper file:// URL to it.
