i have win xp pro and have broadband also i use outlook express for my email, i recently installed firefox as my browser then uninstalled it, i have gone back to internet explorer,
the problem i am having is when i use to get an email with a link in it, i used to be able to click on the link and it would take me straight to the web page, but now it comes up with a box saying "find link to browser" open an executable file?
