Links in email (Outlook Express) won't open in IE

I discovered last night that I can no longer click on web links in my emails (Outlook Express). I actually have to open IE and copy the link over.

I'm not sure what happened, it worked as soon as last week.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Have you change your browser setting recently?

I had the same problem when I used to use OE.

First check your security settings in OE as this may be blocking the links.

If you are NOT using XP, try this:
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;823301

If you ARE using XP, then try this instead:
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;823301

If neither of the above work, then this might fix it:

Let me know what happens

Thanks for the links, SG. I had tried those last night to no result. I finally realized that I had just installed McAfee Privacy Service to give it a test run (it's free for Comcast users now). It's pop-up stopper was keeping the links from opening IE6. I probably spent over an hour trying different things and it was something as easy as that. Geez........
