Outlook express 6: when reading my email and click on a link within that email it does nothing. Is it a problem with outlook express or internet explorer? Yesterday I did an automatic update with microsoft, something to do with silverlight. Now today I
cannot open links imbedded in my mail. Please Help. I get no error messages, I just get nothing!

If nothing happens when you click a link:
Open Windows Explorer, or the Control Panel.
Go to Tools | Folder Options | File Types.
Scroll down to [NONE] URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol (NOTURL:Internet Shortcut) and select it.
Click Edit or Advanced, depending on your Windows version.
"Application used to perform this action" should read:
"C:\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\iexplore.exe" -nohome (Check the path to
iexplore.exe to make sure that is correct and use the double quotes.)
DDE should be checked and in the boxes below it you should have:
URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy should be the same.
If all the above is correct, uncheck: Use DDE.
