Windows 7: email hyper links won't work.

email hyper links won't work.

Which ever place I get mail. Windstream, Hotmail, Windows Live Mail; when I receive a email with a link to click on it tells me can't do it check default programs. I did and it didn't help. I think these are called hyper links.
I ran sfc /scannow, no problem found.
I'm always running security scans, no problems found.
I have no problems with hyper links except in mail I received.

Can't open hyperlinks in emails

Thank you Boohbah!!! I have been searching for (I'm embarassed to say) two years to fix this problem. This problem was already on my pc when I bought it and never figured out how to fix it. I have been frustrated with the copy/paste game every time I want to open an email. Your suggested link fixed my problem and within two minutes I was able to open any link I want. Thanks for providing the help!!!
