Windows 7: Links in Y!Messenger won't open at all.

(Solved) Links in Y!Messenger won't open at all.

Every since I installed Y! Messenger 9, links from statuses or messages won't open at all in browser. When I click a link, a dialog box appears saying "Application not found".

Thank you.

that just means your computer doesn't know what application too use to open them. You can right click the link and see what app is associated with it. then if it needs changing just browse to the app and hit enter

Hope this helps

Picture is small but I dont mean click on ymessenger. If you drag and drop a message to your desktop and right click it does it show you something like this?

thats much better. Does this happen on every link or just some of them? Ymess is looking to open a helper app. Was the link you clicked on an Html link (like www.sevenforums/index.html) ?

It happens on every link. Even simple links or complicated links. It does not open them at all.

OK I dont use Ymess, but is there an option to check for open in default browser?
Im downloading Ymess now just in case.
Ok have you looked at all the options under connections to see if there is a way to change that?

Outlook won't open links if IE is open.
Well, I have searched and have not been able to find a solution to my particular issue: with IE9 set as default browser, when I click on a link in an Outlook message, the link will only open if IE is not already running. In other words, with IE closed if I click a link in Outlook, it will open, but...
