Windows 7: Programs open browser when they use htlm in interface

Programs open browser when they use htlm in interface

This just started recently and a system restore didn’t help. When I use a program that uses html as part of its interface, instead of displaying it in the interface, it opens a browser. I first noticed it with when I upgraded Xobni in Outlook 2007. The new version uses Google for its search function and when I start Outlook, it also opens the browser to the Google search page. I have it also happening with Puran Defrag which uses html to display its reports. The reports open in a browser instead of displaying in the interface and the interface says page not found.

I have tried changing default browsers and it happens with all of them. Everything else seems to work fine.

I have also tried sfc /scannow with no errors reported. I don’t think that I am hijacked. I have done multiple scans with various products including rootkit scans and come up empty. I have also run the browser with all add ons disabled and had the same results. It also happens when I start the computer in Safe Mode.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate with Firefox at the time.
Thanks for any help.

My Windows programs will not open images, I can open them with PSP
For a while my windows 7 64 bit would open my images in Documents. Now when I try they appear as a garbled strange format. If I go to PSP ProX2 they open fine. This is a problem for me since I often need to add images to document Newsletters I send out. :confused: Thanks, Char
