    I'm running Outlook Express 6 with Windows XP SP3.

    When I click on a link in an email message, Internet Explorer fails to open and Outlook Express hangs, and I need to do a ctrl-alt-del to get out of it.

    I've checked the problems listed in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q177054/ but that didn't make any difference, and I've also tried the advice I found elsewhere to go Start - Run REGSVR32 URLMON.DLL and reset Internet Explorer to default settings.

    I've also found that the links to Windows Update in the standard windows Start menu don't work either.

    I'm using ESET Smart Security 3.0.669.0 but nothing in the firewall log shows no connections blocked, and I disabled all protection options when trying to get this problem solved and it made no difference.

    Help would be appreciated. Thanks
