Any links that are sent to me through Outlook 2000 will open up a browser (sometimes) but will not search for any page. I have a limited background so please answer in simple terms. Thanks for your help.

When you say "will not search for any page" do you mean the page is blank?  Or there is an error?  Or what exactly?

Sometimes IE will open but the globe in the upper left hand corner isn't turning and the page never pops up. There is no error. Nothing happens. It seems like there is a security setting somewhere, that I can't find, that will not allow me to open links in emails.

Version 5.5. Could it be the security on my Outlook 2002? I believe I put 2000 above, oops! Outlook 2002 won't open any file types that it deems dangerous, ex: .exe, etc...
There has to be a way to override at least the links. .com is on the list of dangerous extentions. Maybe that is why.

Open Intenet Explorer and click TOOLS->INTERNET OPTIONS->PROGRAMS.  There is a check box at the bottom which says "internet explorer should check if it is the default" or some such.  If that is not checked, check it, click  OK, and close IE.  Then reopen IE and see if you are prompted to make it the default.  If so choose yes, then try a link in email.
