Found 21st Jun 2009
Ive had this problem for a while and I cannot seem to find a solution!

When someone sends me a link on msn,
I click on it and it then opens m/s word??

I also tried to open my mail from the msn box,
but it does exactly the same...

Ive checked settings and cant find anything that would cause this...

Ive also uninstalled and reinstalled msn...
with no change...

Its getting on my nerves having to copy and paste links

anyone help plz?

It sounds like a Windows file type issue.

In XP: From the My Documents folder, click on Tools menu, Folder Options then the File Types tab. Look down the right hand side of the list and see what opens with Word - it should only be files with DOCx extensions. If there is an strange file type that opens with Word, highlight and delete it. Click apply and then try your mail links.

Vista should be pretty similar but I havent got a Vista PC here, sorry.

Might take a bit of trial and error - good luck. Don't be afraid of deleting file types as they will restore themselves to defaults if and when required.
