my sister can no longer open links that are in her emails. If she click on the link - nothing happens. Have tried multiple emails from several sources. Her internet works fine. Emails come and go without issue. She is running windows xp and uses Outlook express. I am guessing a setting got changed somehow, but I haven't figured out which one.

Thanks for that Tomk, I've been having the exact same problem for some reason and was having to copy and paste links directly into IE8. What a drag but a drag no longer :thumbup: Cheers, Lee
