Windows 7: Outlook 2016 started displaying link addresses instead of opening them

Outlook 2016 started displaying link addresses instead of opening them


Hope I can explain this properly. This morning I found MS updating my Office 2016. After they finished I now see links in my received emails, i.e if an email used to come with small gifs in the email, i.e. "." it now just displays <> for each part of an image. Having to click to see a dot will take forever to finish an email, besides each element shows up singularly not combined. Some emails are virtually unreadable because of all the links interspersed with the text. I have removed the Trust Center check mark from the Don't download pictures automatically in standard html emails or RSS items. I also made IE11 the default browser, and lowered some IE11 security settings and made them less secure. I recently upgraded to FF 67.0.4 but then I switched to IE11 because of something I read while searching. Any help suggested much appreciated.
