I use Thunderbird and Opera as my default programs this is in XP pro. Sp3
Links in ThunderBird no longer launch Opera or IE for that matter.
I have checked to make sure Opera and ThunderBird are set to be the defaults.
I had this problem once before and as I recall the fix was relatively painless but cannot find the answer this time.
I have searched Google but so far nothing works. Any Ideas?

Actually the answer was much easier........Control Panel...Add & Remove Programs.....Set Program Access and Defaults.
Thanks for the reply.
