Hi,

Since a recent virus, Internet Explorer no longer opens Outlook as my email client. Instead it sends me to the Hotmail login page. I've checked in Internet Options/Programs and Microsoft Office Outlook is selected.

What's my next step please?

Sorry for delay - no, this person is still using IE6. She has to as she uses an old web based database that does work well with 7 or 8

Does she have the msn/bing toolbar installed?  It could be causing the problem.

You can reset IE6 by following this guide ;
http://www.malwarehelp.org/how-to-reset-internet-explorer-6-to.html/

Also, you can remove unwanted BHOs and things using HiJackthis

Finally, if you log on tot he PC as another user, does the same thing happen?  If not, recreate the users profile.
