mac rewriting script text and adding gibberish

I recently worked out a script to click a button and go directly to individual pdf's on a server. It works perfectly on a pc but when the script triggers on the mac it converts the link text into the following:

 

http://y:%5CArchives%5CUSC%20Desktop%5CNOTEBOOKS%5C74_480_80_HELEN_CHANDLER_NEVER_ROBBED_A_BANK.pdf

 

and tries to open it in Safari instead of Adobe Acrobat

 

the link should be

y:/Archives/USCDesktop/NOTEBOOKS/74_480_80_HEL:EN_CHANDLER_NEVER_ROBBED_A_BANK.pdf

 

Is there a fix for this?
