Hi Geeks,

I have obviously changed some settings on my computer that is causing a problem. I can no longer click links in email to go to the Internet--when I click, the Owner folder opens instead of taking me to the link target.

Can someone tell me what setting needs to be changed to take me to inserted link in my email?

I have Mcafee, and it seems to do the same thing, to me, from time to time. With Mcafee, it is my spam killer and privacy service that does this. My son only uses Virus Scan, in Mcafee, for this reason. I have found that the Spam Killer needs to be modified or removed. What I am saying is that the problem is, most likely, your virus protection settings.

Thanks for responding. So, do you think removing the virus protection would reset the default? Or would it be better to remove and reinstall Outlook?

Do I ever hate copying those shortcuts! :(

I have uninstalled it and re-installed it and that works. If you have XP, and do not have automatic updated enabled, you might need to update your outlook and XP. I recently installed about 20 updates and many were critical security updates.

I wouldn't reinstall outlook express. There are patches and updates, for outlook, on the Microsoft update page. Sometimes Virus programs, McAfee, will scan your e-mail first through another server incoming mail pop address. This change of pop can be a little of a problem, but it is related to the privacy feature in McAfee Security Suite. Uninstalling the privacy feature helps.

Another problem could be that your security level is too high. You might try a lower security level in your virus protection.

You might try updating your Virus protection. You did not say which Virus program you are using?

I usually alternate between programs like Norton and McAfee, every year, so that I can keep up with issues. My memory is shot and I cannot even remember using Norton, last year. I can only talk about McAfee now.

I also updated my Adobe to 7.0, because I could not open PDF's in my browser. 7.0 Adobe installation seemed to clear up this problem and resets defaults.

Thanks again, this is a big help. I remember getting a reminder from Adobe 7.0, but didn't update it. I'll try that to see if it resets. I bought Norton but it messed up my settings so much I use McAfee now. I probably need to get something else.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
