Outlook Express, Links in E.Mails don`t work...

  Granny. 09:05 11 Mar 2010

Good morning.

It`s not exactly a problem,I guess, more of an annoyance, but, for some reason, any links in my email just don`t work.

It doesn`t happen anywhere else, just in Outlook Express.

I`ve run virus and spyware checks, just in case, but they`ve come back all clear.

Does anyone know what is causing this ..... PLease?

a long time ago. I'm afraid I don't remember the EXACT cause/solution, but I'm pretty sure that it was something to do with file associations/and or default browser...

Sorry I can't be more specific!

Thanks for taking the trouble to reply Simsy.

I had actually changed my Browser from Google Chrome back to IE, so I wonder it is something to do with that...

Yes, it is to do with that - in IE go to Tools - Internet Options - Programs and make IE your default browser.

I`ve just done that Sea Urchin, and it`s worked!!!

Thank you very much...
