I am running outlook 2010. When I click on a hyperlink in outlook the "Open With" dialog comes up rather than the link opening. The Current open with program is garbled characters and no program i choose (IE included) works.
I am running Windows 7 and checked the "default programs" app and checked that IE was the default app - but that didn't help.
Screen shot is included!

I checked the program defaults and IE is default.
I checked the specific file associations for htm, html, http, https and ftp are all pointed to Internet explorer.
The actual link - i dont know. The screen shot shows some odd (maybe chinese) characters.
on that screen that comes up asking what program to use - even if i select Internet Explorer - nothing happens.
Just to cover my bases i ran a repair of office, ran virus scanner, malware bytes, superantispyware and spybot.

Make sure the file type reset is done for HTML and HTM files.
