I had a similar problem a while back - long shot, but by an chance, has the PC had Firefox previously installed?

In my case I uninstalled FireFox but the system was sill trying to associate Hyperlinks with it - and they went no where. In the ed I had to re-associate .HTML with internet explorer and all was good again.

Might be a good idea to revisit the file associations anyway?

Does this help?
I had the same problem on a client's computer.

I found they had Google Chrome installed too. I closed Outlook 2007. Closed Internet Explorer. Then uninstalled Google Chrome. Then went into Control Panel > Default Programs > Set Program Access and Computer Defaults > Custom. I then made sure Internet Explorer was selected. Opened Outlook 2007 and clicked on a hyperlink and it worked.
