Operating System Version:XP
Problem Application Name & Version:IE6 and OE
Problem Hardware Make & Model:

for some unknown reason recently if i click on an internet link within a e-mail program, tried both OE and Incredimail, the outline of the IE window opens but cannot load the site.
Loading direct from IE with my broadband connection opens instantly.

I have just noticed the same happens if i click on links in this forum. if i right click and copy link then paste it into address bar it loads perfectly.

Hi,

Sounds like the URL association to IE is messed up.

Find an HTM and an HTML file on your hard drive or save a text file using notepad to your desktop and rename the file to .htm and one to .html
Then hold down the <SHIFT> key and right click the file, select open with...
Select Internet Explorer or browse to iexplorer.exe, check Always use this program box and hit OK. This should fix the association
