Windows 7: Can't activate links in WLM nor open enclosures

Can't activate links in WLM nor open enclosures

There is no response when I click on links. If enclosure is an Adobe PDF I can open them when I specify "Open with Adobe". Will you be good enough to provide a fix for this please.

For your mail/link problem click on start orb, click default programmes in menu>Set Programme Access and Computer Defaults>select custom and set it from there.
This is how mine looks.

The other problem you are having, click on start orb, click default programmes in menu>Associate a file type or protocol with a program then scroll through the file types till you get the one you want, ie PDF, click and set it to open with adobe or whatever PDF reader you use, this tutorial may be of help to you, the author of it, Brink explains it better than I.

Cannot open links and attachments

GStJ here again. Sorry about the delay. I have now been able to access both links and attachments through your help although I have had to repeat the process in Default a couple of times, and am now operating WLM through Internet Explorer. I have appreciated your help. I got a bit lost in the Tutorial but thanks for pursuing my problems with me.
