Two days ago, I installed MS updates--they were all oriented toward either malicious software OR MS Office products. Since then I haven't been able to open hyperlinks in Firefox or emails. I could eliminate those update and add them one at a time, but I thought someone might know of a better solution.

Where are you clicking the hyperlink, Firefox?  Where are you expecting to go to?

Make sure Firefox is set as default browser. Go to Start > Set Program Access and Default.  Select the browser that you want to link to open to. Click OK.  Test a link.

If no joy, then you will have to delete a Windows update one at a time.
