Can't open links in OE6 email

Using W2K---OE6 and I'm not able to open any links in my email.
I tried to use the IE repair but didn't get that option in Add/Remove Programs>internet explorer, only able to "uninstall Q867801 and restore the previous configuration"

Thanks for any help you can give me, mike

Hi mjcap,


First make sure IE as the default Internet browser

Then open "My computer"
go to tools --> folder options --> file type
Click on
(NONE) URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol
Click on "Advanced"
click on Edit
and under
"Application used to perform action"
give this

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome

Press OK and come out

Now open OE and check if links will open

Try to repair IE

Hi Mike,  when you get back from out of town, try this:

Go to Control Panel, Internet Options, the Programs tab, and click Reset Web Settings.  Then try your links again.

What OS is this?

Sorry for not getting back sooner but just starting to move around a little from Thoracotomy surgery on 8/9/04

Resetting Web Settings didn't help.

I have W2k and IE 6.0 on both computers

Thanks, Mike

My son found the problem, it was a pop-up software that was causing the links not to open.

How can I get this question deleted and points returned to my account.

Many thanks to all that did try to help, Mike
