Sounds like the problem is that the program is having trouble "linking" the link to your browser. Here's an easy way to fix this (assuming you're using Internet Exlorer ...other browsers, same concept, just different file to point to).

Go to a website, any website. Click on "File" then "Save As". Save the file to your Desktop. You should now have an HTML file sitting on your Desktop.

Now, hold down the SHIFT key while right-clicking on the HTML file. You should get a new menu option that includes "Open With". Regardless of which items show up in the list, choose "Choose Program".

When the "Choose Program" menu comes up, scroll the list until you see "Internet Explorer". Check the box that says "Always use this program..." and click "OK".

After doing this, Internet Explorer should open with the page you just saved. Go ahead and close this browser window, and go ahead and delete the file saved on your Desktop.

Now, go back to Windows mail, hit F5 to refresh the page, then click on a hyperlink again. If you did it right, it *should* open Internet Explorer and the error should be gone.

Hope this helps - please be sure to rate my answer :)

How to email photo taken with computer camera

If using windows any version it is very very easy to do.

Right click on the picture and scroll down to send to then choose mail recipient...
This should open your default email application. and just fill out the to address and send.

If that doesn't work it will depend on what your default email application is.
For Outlook you would just open New Email : and you have 2 options..Insert Picture or attach file..both of which will open a search box looking for where the picture (file is stored).

Google mail is a tad different but also same choices compose new email insert file or insert photo. Both of which you must direct to where the (picture, file is located)).

Or you can just drag and drop the photo into the body of your email and send.

Almost every email app has the same options...Insert Photo (image) or attach file.

Good Luck

Why wont my laptop open any links i get in my yahoo emails

I have had the same issue with hyperlinks in my Yahoo email. If you go to settings and switch back to basic mail, the hyperlinks become active again. The issue is with the "updated" Yahoo mail.

Default mail client

It sounds like you are trying to click on a hyperlink to email someone, like at a website. These hyperlinks are programmed to open an email client like Outlook, or Outlook Express and open a new mail message with the email address line populated.

If you are using a WEB based email like Yahoo, Hotmail and the like, then the hyperlink will not work, and you get the error you describe. Generally it isn't worth the time and effort to setup an email client if that is the only reason you are doing it.

SO, generally, I just open my email, then type the email address of the hyperlink ( for example)

I click on links within email messages but nothing happens - is there a way to fix this?

If it's not opening on it's own perform a Microsoft update to resolve the problem, or what you can do is right click on the link, select copy hyperlink or hyperlink location and paste it into the address bar in the top of the internet browser window.

Good luck.

When a hyperlink is in my email (Outlook Express) I can't open it

Clicking on links in eMail is the fastest known way in the Universe to have your all on-line log-ins & passwords stolen ...

So more than one mail viewer now has the ability to block this action ... I expect you will find the control in Security / Advanced settings ... however (I would suggest) on this occasion, the PC really does know better :-)
