Links in Live Mail quit working

My wife's PC running Win7 and Live Mail told her when she clicked on a link (any link, like a store) in her mail that there was not a file associated with it, It has worked fine till last night.
Can someone tell me the steps to fix this?

Thanks
Jack

in WLM in options- READ
read all messages in plain text setting should be unchecked
If it is then try this
put a check mark in it then close WLM
look at the message again see if it works
if nothing- go back in and uncheck it
close Wlm
reopen it
and see if it now works

If not you might want to do a repair of Wlm
go to Control Panel
Pick Windows Live Essentials
Double click like you were uninstalling it but it will give you an option to Repair
Pick this option and see if it fixes it

Your spec's are not showing which Browser you use and is Default,
You might actually get a popup message if you open your browser that the default setting has been altered/ changed,
Click the Start button and click on Default programs/ Set your default programs/ Click on your browser and click on Set as default/ Close.
Boot or shut down your machine,
Test the issue.
