At work I use Internet Explorer version 6. Normally, if I receive a hyperlink in an email, for example, I click on it and the linked page opens. However, in my work IE when I click a hyperlink IE opens to its homepage. Others at work do not have this problem. When they clink a hyperlink the linked page opens. Is there some sort of box I need to tick in the options menu?

One thing to try:

For Windows XP

At the top of this page TOOLS/Internet Options.
Advanced tab.

Close all open windows.
At the bottom, click the Reset button under Reset Internet Explorer settings. A confirmation box will open, click OK.
Click OK in the main advanced tab window.

This will reset the homepage to MSN, which can be easily changed back to whatever page you prefer to use.
Open IE.
Try to open a link from IE and Outlook Express.

I did some research, the process is the same for Vista.

You may also try right clicking the hyperlink and selecting "save shortcut".
Paste the url into the address bar then hit your enter key.
If it goes to the linked site, re-register the 7 dll's described in this MS article.
