    The problem is that when I get an email and there is a link like www.google.co.uk etc etc I click on it and I am given a load of garbage about contacting the Administrator, I am the administrator I built the machine.

    I have been onto various sites and Forums so I am new here so I thought that I would start the thread.

    specification are

    Windows 7

    Office 2010

    2tb HDD

    8GB RAM

    2 most likely reasons, and there are more that 2.......

    1. Your browser, or your main browser if you have more than one, does not have all its defaults.

    2. Your e-mails program which you do not disclose, does not have all its defaults.
    You can use the following method to check the "default" issue of the above......

    steps to solve it are
    Start button.
    click Default programs...
    click Set Your Default programs
    click Internet Explorer, or your main browser....

    does it say "This program has all its defaults" ?

    If no, click Chosse defaults for this program... check all the boxes under the list...click Save when done.

    Do the same procedures on your e-mail program.
