I have already tried file association using explorer and right clicking on a
file and choosing "Always use...". It doesn't work. I mean it works if I
double click on a file in Explorer, but what I want to do is click on a
hyperlink in Word and having the .htm document open in Word rather then
Internet Explorer.

Is there a Word option setting somewhere? On some PC it works fine.

Hmmm, the best I could come up with was:

1. Follow the hyperlink (CTRL-click, or right-click-open hyperlink).
2. Then from IE, choose File-"Edit with Microsoft Office Word"

- or -

1. Copy the hyperlink.
2. Paste it into the File Open dialog.
