I think I must have turned something off as some links work, but most don't.
I used to fill out surveys but now can't get to them unless I copy the link, got to explorer and paste and go from there to the link.

Is Internet Explorer set as your default browser?
To set Internet Explorer to be the default Internet Browser, follow these steps:
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click the Internet or Internet Options icon, and then click Programs.
Make sure that the Internet Explorer should check to see if it is the default check box is selected, click Apply, and then click OK.
Open Internet Explorer, and then click Yes when you receive the following prompt:
Internet Explorer is not currently your default browser. Do you wish to make it the default?
Links in e-mail messages should then open Internet Explorer.

If that doesn't work:
Tools at the top of this page. Choose Internet Options.
In Options, Advanced tab.
At the bottom, RESET Internet Explorer Settings. (I've used this method several times, it has always worked for me)

Resetting IE will change your home page to MSN, but you can easily change it back to whatever you currently use.
