When I click on a hyperlink in received mail in outlook express absolutely nothing happens, I have to copy and paste the link directly into the address bar of IE.
Please help as I am sure it is something simple but I just can't find it and it is really annoying me!!
Cheers

If you click on a hyperlink in a web page and only a blank window appears,

Go to Start / Run
Then enter regsvr32 urlmon.dll
Click Ok when finished
If that single change does not resolve the problem, repeat the process by running regsrv32 with the following dll files.

Shdocvw.dll
Msjava.dll
Actxprxy.dll
Oleaut32.dll
Mshtml.dll
Browseui.dll
Shell32.dll (Windows XP and Windows 2000 only)

There have been several instances where the previous tip using regsrv32 does not solve the problem with hyperlinks not working.
In this case try:

Open Internet Explorer
Go to Tools / Internet Options
Click on the Programs tab
Click on the Reset Web Settings button

Will the suggestion above work if no window is appearing?
When I click on a link it does absolutely nothing.
