Outlook 2007 - links in emails

Posted on 2014-08-17
Last Modified: 2014-08-21
My Os is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use Outlook 2007.  During a malware/virus situation, after troubleshooting, it was deduced that one of the links in the emails is causing the Malware screen to pop up.  None of the anti virus softwares, like adwcleaner, slim... ms security essentials,  found anything like a threat, but by deduction, it was found that whenever an email client was opened, this alert appears.  
Is there a search syntax to see if there is a link in an email, I know that this will bring up practically every email i have in the various folders, but at least it will reduce the amount of emails I have to go thru.
Thank u.

    If you really want to only look through emails without links, you could use filters in Outlook, using criteria that does not consider "http" in the message body.

    That should return all emails without http links.
