When hovering curser over any hyperlink in the reading pane the correct link address showes but when I click it I get "windows cannot open this file" because It seems to not be seeing the whole link address. Only part of the link shows in the error message.

It has been working fine. I uninstalled and reinstalled outlook and uninstalled a hotfix that had been installed that day (KB976422) but to no effect.Have checked default programs all are correct. In outlook and IE.


The thread listed solves a security issue - the problem is that it is looking for a program. I also find that the whole link address is not given in the dialog box. This happens every time i click a hyperlink in Outlook 2007.
