Go to -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs
Click on the Set Program Access and Defaults button on the left
Click on the custom category there you will see Choose a default Web Browser select Internet Explorer
And Click OK
That should set Internet Explorer as your default browser, and all your hyper links should work in IE.
On a different note why did you uninstall Firefox?
Thank you for your help. I tried everything but couldn't figure it out. I took Firefox off because I am too old to figure out how it worked so I decided to stick with something that I am familiar with. Thanks again.
