Clicking on Web Link Brings Up "C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MAPI\1033\nt" Folder!?

Sometime in the past month or so, I noticed that when I click on a web link (e.g. a link in an email), window displaying the "C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MAPI\1033\nt" folder pops up.  I do not go to IE or Mozilla.  I have both and have tried changing the default browser, but it didn't help.  I have to copy the link, open IE or Mozilla manually and paste the link into the address bar and that works.

If I click on a link inside a browser window, the link works fine.

Any ideas on what went wrong?

Thanks,

John

I tried the inbox repair tool and it found "minor problems."  I fixed them, but the problem is still there.  Are you suggesting I should try and completely uninstall MS Office and then reinstall it to solve the problem?

Thanks,

John

John,

Are you using IE7 Beta, per chance? If so, try uninstalling it.

Many people report this problem. The standard procedure is to remove and then reinstall MS Office. Which version are you using? If its MS 2000, complete removal instructions are here:

Uninstalling IE 7 Beta seemed to do the trick.  Thanks.
