  • Mr. Fixit was not successful.  I still cannot open hyperlinks in outlook express.

  • Cory...I tried your fix and I had everything exactly the same in the quotes already, except my "iexplore.exe" was in caps (IEXPLORE.EXE); then I changed to lower case and....voila...it worked!  Thanks!

  • i need to fix highper link MS outlook

  • Try setting the IE as your default browser in "Internet Options" window and "Program Defaults" in Control Panel.

  • my computer keeps logging 5 minutes after I leave it.I have tried Powerpoint even the advanced and made all the changes but after an hour or so it starts doing it again please help

  • When I said Powerpoint I meant Power Options sorry

  • How do I fix my hyperlink displays. I have Office 2007 and everything worked fine. Now, instead of displaying hyperlinks in blue underlined, the hyperlinks display {HYPERLINK "http://www.miscrosoft.com"}. How can I fix this back to work properly. I am also having problems with page numbers displaying wierd as well. Thanks.

  • I can't view an attachment sent on Outlook Express from Mike Mohr.

    Things I send to pvanbaale@sbshelp.com are trying to send to the wrong address.

    Can't read message from illiopoliscc@gmail.com. I can't see that anything is blocked.

  • There is an answer here that worked for me:

    I have XP.

    On this page,

    social.answers.microsoft.com/.../2811dc6b-ee41-4e57-a612-700c9e471cd3

    scroll down to where it says "For Windows XP:"

    I use Firefox, so I did not want to change the default browser, even temporarily.

    I started where it says "If hyperlinks are still not working".

    When I  got to step 6, I clicked on the "Browse" button, instead of following this instruction to the letter.

    I went to the program files, Mozilla folder, and clicked directly on the firefox.exe program name.  Use "OK" to back out of this and the next screens.

    I then performed step 7 in the same way.  I did a few other URL choices on the list, just to make sure.  Somehow, Google's Chrome browser had gotten inserted into this location, and messed things up.  It could have been when I updated my Sun Java, even though I had selected "NO" when presented with the choice of adding this browser.

    I want to thank Microsoft for their help, and the other folks who wrote in and provided information.

  • This attempt to fix the above problem was unsuccessful. Could it be that my e-mail is Outlet Express?  

  • Recently when I click on the delete button to delete an e-mail nothing happens. How do I alternately delete unwanted e-mails?

  • I am able to get email in with Outlook Express but unable to send, I get the message.Outlook could no be started because another instance of it is still running on your computer ?? then it tells me to log of windows and restart,then its a case of login off and restarts. Anyone got any ideas!

  • I sure hope this works, I am anious to try it out. Bob Riggins
