Hyperlinks Will Not Display Web Page

Not open for further replies.


Outlook version
Outlook 2010 32 bit
Email Account
I'm new. I haven't been able to find the answer yet to this problem. When I click on a hyperlink in Outlook 2010, it does one of two things.

1. If IE8 is open, the hyperlink opens.

2. If IE8 is not open, I get the message that this webpage will not display and the button to diagnose problems.

I have tried the Fix It tool, sfc/scannow, and reinstalling IE8.

Anybody know how to fix this?

Thank you.
I want to also add that when I click the hyperlink, the link does open. However, it has the cannot display message and the diagnose button. I can copy and paste the link into another window and it will open.
No. I have done all that. I even reloaded IE8. I have a different error. The browser opens with the correct URL. This message is on the screen:

"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

Below that is the button with the text "Diagnose Connection Problems."

Again, let me go over the details.
1. If IE8 is open, the link opens.
2. If IE8 is not open, I get the error above.

Thank you.
The solution on that page might fix your problem... unless it's the same thing I see occasionally, which i pass off as IE being goofy. It happens not just with urls i click in Outlook, but also when i right click on a link in IE and choose Open in New Tab (or in new window). The page doesn't load... i refresh the page and it loads fine. I'm never quite sure where the problem lies - with the network, the browser, or windows. It is more frequent some days and I can go weeks without it happening.
After searching the internet and getting input from you guys, I think the problem is just a bad install of Office Professional. This all started about a week ago when I was given a new computer. Before this post I had the installers technical personnel address the issue. They tried to fix it but couldn't. That is when I posted. I appreciate your time and input and at this tiem iw ill just let it rest. If I can't live with it, I will have them reinstall Office Pro.

Thank you.
