    I have a big problem with my hyperlinks not working outside of IE. It all started when I installed Firefox to see what the hype was all about. Firefox crashed everytime I opened a page so I uninstalled it. Well I thought that was the end of my problems but then I discovered that no hyperlink worked in any of my other programs. So I went into "file types" and set the files that was still associated with Firefox to IE. That didnt work so I am at my witts end. Can anyone help me?

    Click Start, click Run, type the following command in the Run dialog box, and then click OK:
    regsvr32 urlmon.dll

    Repeat step 1 for each of the following commands:

    regsvr32 mshtml.dll
    regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
    regsvr32 browseui.dll
    regsvr32 msjava.dll
    regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
    regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
    regsvr32 Shell32.dll (Windows XP and Windows 2000 only)
    You can copy/paste
    Sometimes the above doesn't work,if that's the case,try this:
    Open Internet explorer/Tools/Internet Options/Programs.
    At the bottom,click on Reset web settings.
    Restart and try again.

    Thanks for posting that. I think it had less to do with Firefox (for me at least) than that I had recently run a registry scrubbing utility. I would never have known about this without your generous posting.

    Thanks so much.
