I have an odd problem that I haven't been able to figure out. I'm using Outlook 2002 SP3. When I open a message and click a URL link, a installer application (.net based, I believe) is launched. It's the same installer every time, no matter what link I click. Anyone know how I can stop this from happening?

Thanks,
Rod

Rod,

First make sure that Internet explorer is the browser you want to open those URL's

Then Make IE as the default Web browser

Then go to My computer --> tools --> Folder options --> File types
Click on "NONE (URL: HyperText Transfer Protocol)
Click on "Advanced" and Click on "Edit"
and under "Application used to perform action"
give this

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

Restart the machine and check if that URL would open fine now

Also make sure all html files are opened by default using IE
