I am using Outlook 2003 with Vista Home Professional and Internet Explorer.

All of a sudden, when I click on a hyperlink in Outlook, it takes me to my Internet Explorer home page rather than to where it is supposed to.

I have seen several posts on this subject in this forum and have tried them all without success. I started with the "cancelled due to restrictions on this computer" message, fixed that but then it started opening up the home page. I uninstalled Office and reinstalled it and then when I clicked on the hyperlink, it opened the Local Link Browser. Fixed that, but now I am back to the hyperlink opening up the home page.

This all started because my computer was running extremely slowly. Painfully slow. I found that the cause of the slowness was Google Chrome files that were left behind after I uninstalled it. Somehow in the process of cleaning up those files, I must have done something that affected Outlook and hyperlinks.

Any ideas? I was sure that reinstalling Office would fix the problem, but it hasn't.

Again, I have tried editing the registry, setting IE as my default browser. I have also looked at file associations. Nothing works. I do not have Firefox installed as was noted in several of the posts that were similar to what I am experiencing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
