Windows 7: Problem with "Access is denied"

Problem with "Access is denied"

I have a Dell xps laptop with Windows 7 OS.
I noticed a minor problem recently.
When I click a hyperlink, it prompts "access is denied".
But email- and web-hyperlinks found inside of any webpages work just fine.
But those in text (or Pdf, docs) files, they prompt "access is denied". How can I fix this problem?
Your advise would be appreciated?
