IE 9 won't open hyperlinks from Outlook 2010

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit machine with MS Office 2010. When I try to click on a hyperlink in Outlook, it will open IE but it will fail to open the page. It says it cannot find the page. If I open IE before I click on the link, it will open the site properly.

I have uninstalled all other browsers, reinstalled Mozilla and let it take default and then switch back to IE as default. No Joy.

I have performed a repair on MS Office. No Joy.

I have gone into Start/Default Programs/Set program access and computer defaults/
I have seen threads where others are having problems with this and they change from "custom" to "Windows". Unfortunately when I make any changes to this, they do not stick. I'm not sure if this is the next step or not but will take any help.
Thanks.

Hi,

This is a bit difficult issue :). Here are some ideas which you can give a try.

-What happens when you set Firefox as a default browser and open links from Outlook? If it works fine the the issue is most likely caused by Internet Explorer not Outlook

-Reset IE settings to its defaults. It fixes a lot of issues with IE.

IF reset IE settings to the default didn't work, you can also try:
Go to a command prompt with admin privledges, and enter the command...

netsh winsock reset catalog

Then reboot as prompted.

I have reset IE settings several times. However, when I set Firefox as the default, it seems to work. So, you are correct. Looks like we have an IE issue.
What should I look into now?
