I have a hyperlink in outlook 2003. Till yesterday it worked well.
Now when I press it I got a message 'choose the browser to open this with' (This is a translation from hebrew so it might not b exact) and opens a search window to find an exe file. I went and chose the internet explorer. now when I press a hyper link I get the iexplorer open with an unable open.

How can change this setting and what should I change it to?

There's a lot of explanations. Hope one of these work:

1. Obviously, make sure you're on the internet
2. I'm not a fan of Internet Explorer - try Firefox, Netscape or Opera instead. Netscape is very similar to Firefox these days.
3. Check the hyperlink is valid (right click on the hyperlink -> edit hyperlink, copy the address and paste into a browser). If this doesn't work, it'll probably be the hyperlink.
4. Check your firewall and that you haven't blocked the parent application Microsoft Word from connecting to the internet through Internet Explorer. If you blocked it, change the firewall to allow the parent, or delete it altogether, try again, and click allow.

1. The computer is part of a network

2. The problem is with the outlook not the browser. The outlook asked how to open the link. If I could change the definition then I could play around and find a solution

3. The link is ok. When it opens it there is about 20 '0' before the name and a few after.

4. The fire wall is not blocking any thing
