When I click on a internet link in an Outlook 2000 e-mail message the Office shortcut bar throws an error. Any solutions?

Thanks

Have you tried a Repair on Office2k?  Start-Settings-Control Panel-Add/Remove-Office-Repair.

Thanks. I have tried that solution before and I'm afraid it didn't work.

What's the error?

The error has vanished! I cannot replicate it. It will re-surface I'm sure. When it does I'll make a careful note and post the details.

Thanks again

Verify Internet Explorer is set as default browser:

1.  Open Control Panel and double click Internet Options and go to Programs tab.
2.  Check box to have IE check if it is the default browser when opening, click OK
3.  Open Internet Explorer and see if you are prompted to make it the default browser, if so choose yes.

This will reset the Windows file association so hyperlinks are handled correctly.
Sure sounds like repair worked. LaurieR last logged in 8-October without feedback.
