hyperlinks don't work

When I click on a hyperlink in an email like the one in the attached (highlighted in red)

I get the warning as per the attached.

I am not aware of changing anything in the registry although Reghunter might have done this without my knowledge. Can you help ?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Yep I'd say stay away from registry editors/ cleaners... they usually do more harm than good,
The link BrightBlessings posted should help
A hyperlink would use your default browser so you could switch that preference to either Chrome or Internet explorer and back again and see if that works too,
Cheers.
