I found it best to leave IE as the default browser (IE, Tools, Options) and to not allow addons to either IE or Outlook.
And if this is the 64 bit Outlook or IE, I have no fix (Microsoft seems to be gone to lunch on that.) If you must run that version, task Microsoft for the fix I have yet to see.
I have outlook 2010. But when i try to click on link to a website i get internet explorer not working checking solution. Thn error 217. Then i click x and explorer then works. Can any one tll me please how to fix it so that it goes straight to webpage after clicking link.
