    I am running Windows XP Pro with Service Packs. When I click a web link in emails Windows Explorer opens and is expecting me to locate and run an exe file. The browser opens and to the proper page. I am wondering what is causing the Explorer to open. I run behind a firewall, protect with Grisoft's AVG, and Webroots Spysweeper. Any thoughts on this will be welcome.

    Thanks.
