Using Outlook 2002, when I click on an email hyperlink I get an error message in Explorer "the path < >does not exist or is not a directory", e.g. when I clicked on the link to verify my email address from Experts Exchange, I got the message "the path 'OCXEVsMfPBw26lib' does not exist or is not a directory. I am using XP Home Editiion, Explorer version 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm.010103-2158 Update version SP2. When I do get an email link that works, I also get one extra blank Explorer window. If I cut a paste the URL in IE, it works just fine. I have reinstalled Outlook. If a hyperlink does work, I also get one extra blank IE window in addition to the website window.
