problem with hyperlinks in win 7 & ie 8

  gemdogie 09:35 10 Dec 2009

I am running Windows 7 with IE 8
Over the last few days the hyperlinks in my Email accounts & some websites refuse to operate on the click command.
They were working perfectly prior to this, nothing has been changed by me, although there have been some microsoft security updates downloaded this week.
Has anyone come across this problem ?

Have you recently installed then uninstalled Google Chrome?

Thank you for the reply rawprawn,
No I have not installed any other browser.
This is a new computer with windows 7 preinstalled along with IE8. I have checked that IE is the default browser and it is, there is only the one browser showing as installed.It was working ok, transferring the clicked hyperlink to the relevant web page. Now when clicked nothing happens.Can get round it of course with copy & paste but what a bind.

System Restore?

Trying to avoid it but if I can't find a solution I guess I will have to do that.
