Windows 7: No links in applications are working D:

20 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium OEM X64
No links in applications are working D:

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone could help me.

I have a new ASUS laptop which has been working fine since I have got it, I used to have a gaming computer.

For some random reason now, this has only started happening today, when I go to follow a hyperlink in any Microsoft Office program, steam or skype it doesn't follow, it doesnt do anything at all. If I try to use a hyperlink in a email in Microsoft Outlook it says I don't have the administrative rights to do this. I am the only user of the laptop D:

I don't know what I've done to make this happen, I remember this happened to me before on Windows 7 Home Premium before on my PC D:

I would appreciate any idea's that can fix this ):

First I would scan for a virus that may have hijacked your hyperlinks.
Second - start menu - all programs - default programs - change association type -
url should be associated to internet browser.

You could also try a System Restore to before this started happening, see if that helps.
