Config Panel>Add Remove
select Microsoft Internet Explorer
click on add/remove button
select Repair an existing installation

Repairing IE this way might very well help.

Another simple solution worked on my XP Pro. Control Panel | Add/Remove | Set Program Access & Defaults (last box on left) click on Custom and reset default programs. Hyperlinks now open in IE and Firefox.
