Links in emails not working

Using Windows XP Prof.

Recently when I receive any emails with text links in them when I click the link a window opens with the heading SELECT LANGUAGE and when I OK US English it starts downloading files for Adobe Flash Player but nothing else happens and the link never opens.

If on the other hand I cut and paste the link in to the browser (latest Internet Explorer) it works or if the link gives a text description and does not give the URL if I do View Source from email and cut and paste the URL from the HTML coding this it opens up the correct page.

What is happening here and what has made it do this all of a sudden over past 3-4 weeks.
