Which browser and what is your default e-mail client?

Woolwell Browser is IE8. What do you mean by "default email client " ? I should have made it clear that the problem is left clicking links contained in email messages received,e.g I could not go straight to your message from your email link, I had to find it in PCAdvisor. Thanks

What are you opening the e-mails with Outlook Express, Live Mail or webmail?

Outlook Express 6.

Haven't used OE6 for many years. Have a look at this. But be wary of registry changes and create system restore point before running the last portion.

Thanks. Now discovered that my IE software was corrupt & this caused the problem. All sorted now.
