    You can try these out, hopefully one will work for you: 1) Try setting IE as the default browser in control panel. In control panel, click on the “set program access and computer defaults” then expand custom. In “choose a default web browser”, check on the “Internet Explorer” option and click the OK button. 2) Open Outlook then go to Actions > Junk E-mail > Junk E-mail Options In the Options tab make sure the Disable links and other functionality in phishing messages box is unchecked. 3) Try resetting Web settings in Internet Explorer. Open Internet Explorer. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options, the Advanced tab, and then click the Reset button. On the Programs tab, under Internet programs, click Set Programs, then “Set your Default Programs”, select Outlook and click “Set this program as Default”. Repeat for Internet Explorer. Click OK and close the dialogs.

    Try out the following tips: 1. Open Control Panel\Default Programs\Set Associations . Scroll down and check if HTTP and HTTPS are set to Internet Explorer. 2. Go to “Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs” and set your browser as Default. 3. Go to Default Programs > Set program access and computer defaults> Microsoft Windows configurations. Then, set Internet Explorer as the default web browser and click OK. I hope it would work for you.
