We have a end user, using Windows XP SP3, Outlook 2003 and IE6.
When clicking on any hyperlink, Internet Explorer loads, but goes straight to the home page.
No other third party browser has been installed.
I have gone into my computer, folder options, looked at URL HyperText Transfer Protocol, disabled DDE, pointed to the browser, but to no joy.
Reset browser settings and ensure that it is the defauilt browser.
I have also installed IE7 and recieved the same issue.
