When I click on a hyperlink in an email, rather than raise the page in tjhe browser it comes up with the message that there is no program associated with the type of file. You can then choose IE but it continues to reqest the application to use. How do I fix this?

In 'Start' > 'Default programs' you can check if the right email client is setup as default client.

Open Internet Explorer | Options | Internet Options | Programs |
Hit the Make default button.

If that won't help, please do the following:

Open Internet Explorer | Options | Internet Options | Advanced | Reset Internet Explorer settings
Hit the RESET button.

If neither approaches work, then reinstall/update IE

It would have been nice to have resolved without a reinstall.
