I would like you to do the following please

Please do the following in Internet Explorer (as windows mail uses this for the links)

Click Tools (the gear wheel top right) than Internet Options

Click on the General Tab and Delete all Temporary Internet Files.

Than click the Advance Tab and click Reset

Then restart the computer and tell me if you can now open the links please.

Let me know the results please

Thank you

Sorry I have been so long but I had problems getting back to you.. Bad news ,my links are still not working .



No problem Ron

When did this issue begin?

And is it on all links in any email (from different senders)?

Eg, if you click on View Response to my email from this site, does it open?

I have had the problemsince at least last Sept.I am hesitant on my answer because when I went to test thje result of following your instructions I thought link was OK but as I checked on others the link did not work.

At the moment no links work and" your link "does not,I had to find you by going into the Internet to find you.


The only contribution that I can make is that on closing I always click on "close all tabs"


Regards Ron


Can you go to my link below please

Download and install Google Chrome.

Once installed, restart the computer and tell me if the links now work please.

Thank you
