My operating system is Windows X.P. Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3. I'm using Microsoft outlook for my emails and reciently I've noticed that if I recieve an email with a website link I.E. (http://www.yahoo.com) and I click on it, it doesn't open. How do I enable this option?

To make web pages open again when you click links in emails using Windows XP and earlier:

Make sure neither Outlook Express nor Internet Explorer are open.
Select Control Panel from the Start menu.
Click Internet Options.
If you do not see Internet Options right away, click Network and Internet Connections before.
Go to the Programs tab.
Make sure Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser is checked.
Click OK.
Close Internet Explorer.
Re-open Internet Explorer.
Click Yes when asked Internet Explorer asks "Internet Explorer is not currently your default browser. Would you like to make it your default browser?"
If Internet Explorer does not ask:
Close Internet Explorer
Select My Computer from the Start menu.
Choose Tools | Folder Options... from the menu.
Go to the File Types tab.
Highlight (NONE) URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol.
Click Advanced.
Highlight open.
Click Remove.
Click Yes.
Click OK.
Now click Close.
Start Internet Explorer.
If you use a browser other than Internet Explorer, start it and make sure it is the new default.
