Excel hyperlink opens blank web browser

On this workstation(Windows XP SP2, Office 2003), I click a hyperlink, in Excel, and a browser window opens but is blank.  By blank, I mean the toolbar shows but the portion where the web content should be is white.  Additionally, there are no error messages.  I have looked at the properties of the link and they are correct.  I have opened a browser, copied the hyperlink address from the hyperlink properties in Excel, pasted the address into the browser and that worked.  It opened the page I was trying to get to.  I opened Word, typed "http://www.yahoo.com" held down Ctrl and clicked the link.  Again, a browser window opened but was blank.  The computer is connected to the internet, and the Excel file is on the local desktop so it isn't a connectivity issue.  I have also tested the Excel file on other computers running XP, Server 2003 and Vista and all worked just fine.  Assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.

speshalyst...Thank you for your quick response.  I followed the link you gave, but it did not change the behavior.  I don't want to waste a whole lot of time trying to figure this out.  I believe I will try reinstalling Office.  Unless you, or anyone else, has any other ideas.  Otherwise, I will accept your answer.
