After a recent MS Office update I can no longer click on a URL in a message received in MS Outlook. An example of the error message is:
Microsoft Office Outlook
General failure. The URL was:
...". The system cannot find the file specified.
Likewise, when I click on the Quick Launch icons, nothing happens. Also, many of my shortcut icons on my desktop no longer work.
In these cases if I highlight the URL, right click it and select Open Hyperling the same thing happens. I have to copy the link to the clipboard and paste it into an address bar. This gets me to the URL.
If I paste it into the Start>Run box I get this error message:
Windows cannot find 'http://www.pcmagcast.com/'
. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start
button, and then click Search.
I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 running XP Pro SP2 and MS Office 2007 Beta.
