Windows 7 & Live Mail 2011 problem-defaults to word

I have a problem which just started after a few years of use. When I click on an imbeded hotlink in livemail the link tries to open in windows word instead of just going to the site. Even if word is able to open the page, none of the links work. This is very goofy and suspect some setting changed but cant figure it out

Thanks

Suggestion :

See if your Internet Explorer, or your main browser, has all its defsults.
Start > Default Programs > Set Your Default Programs > left column, click your main browser. Does it asy " This program has all its defaults " ?
If no, click Choose Defaults for this Program > check all the boxes under the list > Save when done.

You said " livemail". If you mean Windows Live Mail, check its defaults too.

Thanks, re-setting the browser fixed the problem. I have no idea why it dropped out, but your fix did work
