    I have a new,powerful pc with Windows 7.
    Recently when I try to open a link in an email in Windows Live Mail,it will not open. I.E. 32-bit cannot complete connection. I cannot close it,and cannot open desktop icons.I have to restart.
    Then,if I open Internet Explorer, and minimise it, I can open links in my Windows Live emails.
    However,after close-down, the problem returns when I start up.

    Consider reinstalling IE8.
    Do the links work fine under Firefox,Opera or any other browser?

    have you associated IE with opening links in email in default applications?

    OK.Now this seems to be a malware relted problem.

    Lets check for that.

    Follow the below Instructions Carefully:

    1. Download Hijack this from the link.

    (Choose the installer of HJT—Hijack This)

    2. Run a Scan.

    DO NOT FIX ANYTHING BY YOURSELF.

    (Doing so when NOT Instructed Might cause Unwanted System Instability, BSOD's and Even Render your System Unusable)

    3. Save a Log file (On your Desktop)

    4. Copy and Paste all the contents.

    5. Paste them in the Reply Window.

    I am NOT an Authorized Malware Remover.

    The Log is requested by me only for Optimization Purposes, troubleshooting and removing applications that are causing various problems such as Crashing, BSOD’s and Freezing and helping the poster remove any incompatible application/program and driver.

    I will therefore NOT help if anything related to Malware is found in your log.

    The thread will then be moved to the Malware Removal Forums for expert assistance.

    The above statement made me say that.
