we do not do web testing
Open TC and project
error message appears: Cannot load data for Web testing
how can this be turned off?
Can you post a screenshot of the Project Explorer content for your project?
Wondering if there is an icon that looks like 'orphaned' one...
Go to File | Install Extensions and make sure the Web extensions are turned on. It looks like something must have been deactivated.

Regardless of wheter or not you do actual web testing, your test project includes web-related items that cannot be properly initialized because of the missed extension.
What I would recommend:
-- Start TestComplete;
-- Navigate to File | Install Extension... menu item and enable the mentioned 'Web Checkpoints' extension;
-- Close the dialog to load the extension;
-- Open your test project. It should be opened fine now;
-- Examine project item that was marked as Unavailable. If it does not contain anything that is required for your project, you may remove it from the current project (Remove, but not delete when prompted!).
Note: your project uses Stores item from the shared network location. I am not 100% sure, but would expect that removal of the web testing item from Stores will affect other test projects that use web testing.
You may check whether or not they are affected, but I think that it is more safe not to remove web testing item from the project, but leave Web Checkpoints extension loaded in your instance of TestComplete. (Memory and performance penalties should be minimal.)
-- Save and close test project if you decide to remove the item from test project. Extension may be unloaded after that.
If the Stores object is shared across projects, that may be the cause of the problem in the first place. Some other project using that Stores object probably IS doing web testing or included the web related object. This is one of the risks of sharing major project items across projects. While it's doable and useful in many situations, doing such a share can easily cause these kinds of unexpected dependancies.
I would follow @AlexKaras instructions. That's your best path to correction.
