Hi, I need some help with this Hyperlink problem.
Everytime i click on a hyperlink on a broswer or anything else it automatically opens in MS Word. It didnt do so before, is there anyway to resolve this?
I would like the links to be opened back in the browsers.

I tried the link, and it end outcome was an error message after downloading it and using it.

Not all data was successfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or other processes.

Try System Restore then.

are there any other ways to resolve it without doing a system restore?

System Restore will just restore system files. It won't do anything to your data.

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. Follow the wizard and select a date before this started happening.

It is just possible that the html file association has become associated to Word. See the 3rd post down and then check whether html is associated to your browser - which is?
