Windows 7: When I click on a Link, nothing happens! It used to work. What's up?

I run Windows-7, IE-11, the error verbage is attached.

I tried:

Go to a link and right click on it. (YES) Then from the drop down Context menu, click on "Open With" (THERE WASN'T AN "OPEN WITH" CHOICE) and from there specify your Default Internet Browser, whether it be I.E, or Firefox, or even Chrome. SAVE your choice, reboot and try the link again. Now, it should work as you want.

I tried holding the Key and clicking but I did not notice anything occur or happen>

What should I have expected?

Hi,
There is a setting in office that if checked it will make one use the ctrl key to open hyperlinks,
The message suggests you do not have permissions to open hyperlinks.
So you'd need to make sure you are using a administrator user account.

My Account is an Admin Account.
My wife's is not.
Her Account is the one with the problem.
It has worked fine for her for over four years.
Now, it will not open them.
I looked in Office but did not find a place to make or change a setting for Links.
Here is my route looking for a setting to change:
START
CONTROL PANEL
SYSTEM & SECURITY
ACTION CENTER
CHANGE USER ACCOUNT CONTROL SETTINGS
NADA

Best regards,
