Preferred Solution: Outook 2003 Hyperlinks Fail

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Outook 2003 Hyperlinks Fail

If hyperlinks are not working in Outlook or other Office applications:

Start the Internet Explorer
Select Tools / Internet Options
Click on Programs tab
Make sure that Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser is enabled
Click Reset Web Settings.

Click Start / Run / regsvr32 urlmon.dll

If that single change does not resolve the problem, repeat the process by running the following additional entries:
regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 Msjava.dll
regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 Mshtml.dll
regsvr32 Browseui.dll
regsvr32 Shell32.dll (Windows XP and Windows 2000 only)

When I click on a hyperlink in an e-mail I get an error. I must cut & paste the URL to IE. Can anyone solve this? I am using Window XP.

Answer:Outlook 2003 e-mail Hyperlinks Fail

If you get an error message, what is the message. On Internet Explorer> Tools> Internet Options> Programs tab> on E-mail: make sure that Outlook is selected for your email program. At the bottom of the window, make sure that the box is checked: Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser. If you make any changes, then click Apply and OK.

For the past two weeks I have noticed that hyperlinks placed in email I am sending are being stripped by Outlook. I use Word 2003 as the email editor. I can write an email, insert (or have automatically convered) emails but if I either send or save those emails, the hyperlinks are removed. The problem does not occur if I use Outlook's email editor.

I have made no setting changes on my system, except moving from XPSP2 beta to XPSP2 Final.

I use Win XP and have a Word 2003 document with some hyperlinks in it. Ive had this document for a long time and regularly edit it. The hyperlinks have always displayed in the correct way.

Then I think I must have done something, because all of a sudden all the links are displaying in an odd way.

Ive tried the ALT + F9 trick and Ive tried going to options and turning off field codes - none of these things fixes the problem.

The links look like this:

NB ive had to insert the "!!" and the "⊥" symbol manually because it didnt copy and paste properly. As a result the upside down t is actually not quite the same (its set slightly lower here whereas in the original document its set higher). Also, the "http://..." bit is actually a live hyperlink in blue in the original document.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Many thanks

Zed1942, slowness is one of the more common complaints heard and it can have a number of causes. I'll enumerate a few of the more common and we'll hope that hits you.Cable access? The number of folks trying to access the net at once can slow things down. Get up in the middle of the night and see if it's faster. If so, learn to love it (the slowness), it's them not you.Speed depends on memory and a lot of machines are right on the borderline when it comes to meeting required minimums so any added 'memory hog' has an adverse effect. Add memory?Sorta along those same lines is your startup menu. Lots of software writers think there's no possible way we could exist without their masterpiece so they put it in the startup menu. That usually only causes slow booting, but ... Take a look at what you have running in the background and be sure there aren't extras.An overzealous firewall reading each item over and over can significantly slow things. A common ailment is a file called 'index.dat'. It gets read every time and can take quite a while if it?s too bloated. It's like a log file and keeps a record of every site you visit on the web. Empty, it's 32K, but it can grow HUGE. It's a protected file and can't be deleted by normal methods.

That outlook is old and outdated really. Microsoft doesn't even support outlook anymore they have gone to Live essentials live e-mail which is free. It's like 10 times better. It's ok to keep the office word etc, but outlook just stinks and the security stinks you gotta download 2 service packs just to secure outlook. Outlook is just garbage nothing but problems setting up security certs with it. I highly recommend downloading Microsoft Live Essentials and during the install process just check that you want windows live e-mail. Once it's installed migrate over or import your accounts and mail over to live e-mail from outlook.

I made IE11 the default browser in Windows 10. When I go to Outlook 2003 and click on a link, it does not show up in IE11. When I go over to IE11, I am looking at the home page. If I x out that tab, I see the note that I clicked on in the screen area. It looks like it tried. I made FireFox the default and the link work. I then made IE11 the default again and used other apps that had links and they all opened pages in IE11. So it seems that it is an Outlook 2003 and IE11 problem. I found a couple of hits on Google where it discusses the problem but it says that I should see an error message when this happens and I do not see one. It also mentions using the Microsoft Fix it tool. When I go to the fixit tool, it states that Office 2003 is no longer supported and mentions the two messages that I do not see.

I have been contaminated with hidden hyperlinks in an Excel 2003 workbook, and I can't get rid of them.

I copy-pasted a table of data from a website, however there were some columns with links in there, and they got pasted with the data. What happens is I have blank cells, and over some of them, the cursor changes the way it should over a hyperlink, and a pop-up appears. When I click into the cell to type something, the link opens in my browser instead.

I also have something else happening in those cells. Sometimes there's a little shape appearing, the sort which seems related to drawing or images (sorry, I can't be specific here, I don't know the name of that object nor what it is, and it's a foreign version of Office).

I've tried the following :

Deleting the columns.
Right-clicking over each cell and deleting the invisible hyperlink.
Creating a new sheet and copying only the adjacent data, without the contaminated columns.
Running this macro.

Nothing works. I tried to create my own hyperlinks in those contaminated cells and they work (links to local files), however I have also the parasitic, phantom links remaining : when I hover somewhere on the left of the cell, it's that link that is detected and not mine. When I copy-paste those cells someplace else in the sheet, both links get copied : mine, and the phantom one. And both "work".

To resolve this problem, follow these steps:1. Click Start, click Run, type the following command in the Run dialog box, and then click OK:

regsvr32 urlmon.dll

2. Repeat step 1 for each of the following commands:

regsvr32 mshtml.dll
regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 browseui.dll
regsvr32 msjava.dll

The problem is not only effecting hyperlinks, but also my receiving email.

Hello forum people,

Wondering if someone can shed some light on an anoying problem i'm experiencing.

I've designed a spreadsheet using Excel 2003 for a small consultancy. They are using windows 2003 small business edition and their network adminstrator claims that everyone has read/write acess to all the shared drives with no restrictions. However, in testing they have found the following problem:

If they create a hyperlink in the workbook to a file on one particular shared drive (R as soon as they save the workbook, the hyperlink doesn't work anymore. Curiously the hyperlink to the R: drive does work before you save the workbook. Even more curiously, hyperlinks to files on any other of the shared drives continue to work fine.

I hope someone out there with more brains than I can help me out.

Hi, all.

I've searched here and Googled. The problem (but no solution) has been posted elsewhere and I'm hoping someone here can help.

Problem: Nearly 1,000 hyperlinks in an Excel 2003 workbook now point to the wrong directory/drive and need to be repointed. For example:

Old hyperlink: ///dsnetapp\\100\125\data\[doc name].pdf
New hyperlink: I:\100\125\data\[doc name].pdf

All of the documents to which the hyperlinks point have been moved to a new drive and no longer work.

What I've tried: Search and replace (doesn't work), manually editing a single hyperlink (doesn't work). Everything reverts back t the ///dsnetapp\\ address. The workbook, worksheet, and cells are not protected. The workbook is not read-only.

The only thing that seems to work is re-doing each hyperlink (go into Edit Hypelink, navigate to new location, select pdf, and save). I would like to find some fix that's less time-consuming and would appreciate any assistance.

Thank you.

I am using Outlook 2003 with Vista Home Professional and Internet Explorer.

All of a sudden, when I click on a hyperlink in Outlook, it takes me to my Internet Explorer home page rather than to where it is supposed to.

I have seen several posts on this subject in this forum and have tried them all without success. I started with the "cancelled due to restrictions on this computer" message, fixed that but then it started opening up the home page. I uninstalled Office and reinstalled it and then when I clicked on the hyperlink, it opened the Local Link Browser. Fixed that, but now I am back to the hyperlink opening up the home page.

This all started because my computer was running extremely slowly. Painfully slow. I found that the cause of the slowness was Google Chrome files that were left behind after I uninstalled it. Somehow in the process of cleaning up those files, I must have done something that affected Outlook and hyperlinks.

Any ideas? I was sure that reinstalling Office would fix the problem, but it hasn't.

Again, I have tried editing the registry, setting IE as my default browser. I have also looked at file associations. Nothing works. I do not have Firefox installed as was noted in several of the posts that were similar to what I am experiencing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

OK guys, this is driving me crazy, I have two clients that have this issue. When they click any hyperlink in outlook 2003, it takes them to their home page, and if you hover your mouse pointer over it, it sais "blocked" then the web address. I searched for about three hours on google, and here is what I have done so far. One article suggested going into the Tools/Folder Options/File types from explorer, then selecting the [NONE] Internet Shortcut, and then checking settings there, which are all correct. I have rolled back to IE6, still opens only the home page.

I have been used to using Word 97, but the company has upgraded me to 2003. I am using the Print Layout to create my documents, and when I create a hyperlink, the hyperlink shows up in underlined blue, but it won't work. It will work if I view the document in Reading Layout, but that doesn't do me any good, since that layout does'nt look anything like the Print Layout. Can anyone make any suggestions?

Answer:Solved: Word 2003 - Hyperlinks don't work in Print Layout

It works.
It's just that Microsoft, in its infinite wisdom, decided to make us Ctrl+Click for a hyperlink.

Otherwise, you can change the setting on your PC to NOT require the Ctrl key.

Try going to the MS Update Site, find that update and set it at "Do not show me again" - might work. The other alternative is to set auto update to notify but do not download or install. The client could then check himself and do a custom download and install - bit of an irritation I admit.

Outlook configuration has not changed... the problem (no mail in or out of Outlook 2003) coincides with some security changes I made to my system a couple of days ago. I uninstalled AVG Antivirus, AVG AntiSpyware, Kerio Personal Firewall, Ewido, and Adaware. I then installed Antivir and Spyware Terminator then reinstalled the latest version of Kerio Personal Firewall. My firewall settings were all saved, but the mail issue persists even when I kill the firewall and spyware terminator. I've even disabled Antivir... all to no avail. New email accounts don't function either

It is not the mail servers since I'm using comcast, gmail and an exchange server... none of them are connecting. I've rebooted the computer and I've tried the detect/repair tool in Outlook

First of all forgive my ignorance, I'm a general PC support tech with very little knowledge of Access.
I had a problem after reimaging to Windows 7 and reinstalling Access 2003: while clicking a form button, run-time error 438. The solution was to find a missing support library file install and register it.
Installing and registering the missing file fixed the problem but not until I replaced the data base file with a backed up copy. It seems the original copy of the mdb file will continue to fail even after the repair.
Is there a check box or setting I can change that will "reset" the data base /button?
This would save a lot of work deleting and replacing data.

Answer:Solved: Access 2003 once failed continues to fail

DavidBrianBest, welcome to the Forum.
I am not sure what you mean by "Is there a check box or setting I can change that will "reset" the data base /button?"
There are a few things that you can do to to work with the Database, you haven't actually said if the data in the original database is intact or not, or if any other forms etc work or not.
First of all I would take one or more copies of the original database and then try the following
Compact & repair one of the copies, add the missing dll link and see if that works.
If your Backup copy works OK with the dll link re-instated then create a new blank database and then Import the Data tables form the original database and the Queries, Forms & Reports from the Backup database, set the all the required VBA Library References and try that version.

For years, the best way to sync Outlook 2010(without corporate exchange server) to the windows phone has been to use the Google Calendar connector to get to their cloud and then onto the Windows phone. This had the advantage of doing two-way synchronization and working with the default calendar in Outlook (the existing .PST file).
Google fully discontinued this service on August 1. Microsoft does not have as simple a solution. The two options I've seen for cloud syncing are to use the Microsoft Hotmail Connector and to use Google App Sync. The Hotmail Connector does not work with the default Outlook profile which means than when an invitation is received from any email account other than hotmail/ it saves to the default calendar, and you then have to copy it to the hotmail calendar in order to sync. The Google App Sync requires a whole different profile with a migration which is an equally big headache or possibly greater. So, neither of these options work without making a lot of manual intervention.
I've been using a local sync program called CompanionLink to sync contacts, notes and tasks. It can sync the calendar but has a couple of disadvantages. 1) you need to manually sync calendar which is not good if constantly on the go and always want to have your appointments. 2) CompanionLink does not feed appointments into the native calendar so it won't appear on the loc...

Answer:How to sync Outook 2010 (non-corporate) with Windows phone?

Frankly the best solution is to sign up for MS Office 365. The cheapest plan (Exchange Online) is $4 per month per user, so for $48/year, you'll get seamless sync of contacts, calendar, tasks, and if you choose, email and more, across Outlook and Windows Phone.
Not free, but works much better than Google's App Sync, the Hotmail Connector, and any of the local sync solutions, and it'll work great with any other devices you add in to sync with (since everything supports EAS).

Hello, I was hoping someone could help me with an Outlook 2007 issue a user has been having. Last week, our exchange server was flooded by a lot of e-mails, causing our users messages they tried to send out to fail and given a Outlook delivery delayed message for each. The issue was solved but I have one user who still has a delivery delayed mail in this inbox and upon trying to open it, Outlook crashes and if you try to deleted it, you get the message:

"One or more items in the folder you synchronized do not match. To resolve the conflicts, open the items, and they try this operation again."

I was thinking this notification was in sync with the e-mail that was delayed, so I did a search and couldn't not find anything related to it. Any ideas on who to get rid of this troublesome message?

Hi all. Irritating & timewasting beyond belief - even for Microsoft - is a hidden shortcut in either Outlook 2007, Office 2007 or perhaps in Windows 7. Centred apparently on the "T" key, a combination of keystrokes reduces the display size of text I type. At enormous waste of time, each occurrence can be remedied, via the View tab in Outlook 2007, then the "zoom" facility. But how do I a) locate the set up instructions for this shortcut, and b) alter or reload them?

I'm a reasonably sensitive typist: this glitch is wasting sooo much of my time. Am in the dire straights of using new Windows 7, with new Office 2007 apps, on a new laptop, a Dell Inspiron 1545.

Advice on shortcut set-up in Outlook 2007, and or in Windows 7 will be much appreciated. Thanks

Answer:Outook 2007 or Windows 7 keyboard shortcut, reducing size of display text.

Is it a laptop you are using.....if so are you sure its not the zoom function on the touch pad

Hi, l've been having a constant issue with my computer and I can't seem to get out of this trouble no matter how many times I reinstall and even wipe out my hard drive.

I wiped out everything in my hard drive and installed windows 7 Ultimate for the '7th' time, and the same problems happen every single time.

Right after the install, it seems to work fine but as I install numerous windows updates as it recommended (almost forced me to, 'cause it does automatically), my computer becomes so slow in everything.

It doesn't start up, the menu and such looks as if I'm in a safe mode (blocky and old looking) even if I manage to start it up, have to wait more than 15min or even 1hr for it to respond.

The situation I'm having now is, the pop up message saying:
"Failed to connect to a windows service: windows couldn't connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This prevents standard user from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond"

Also, the computer has been failing at installing several updates such as:
Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 for x64-based Systems
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2763523)(KB2719857)(KB2735855)(KB2750841)(KB2732059)

Because of that, it sometimes ran chkdsk on the boot screen and deleted/fixed files.

Please post
1) an MGADiag report -
Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report - then we can see what the problem is.
Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

Ignore errors produced when clicking on the Copy button - they simply mean that the tool could not create the backup files for some reason. The data is still copied to the clipboard for pasting to your response.

Hi guys a lot of research online brings me here, and I hope this will be the last stop before I put my fist through the screen of my laptop.

So a few days ago my computer can't connect to wireless, stuck in Limited mode. Troubleshoot says - "wireless connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration". i've uninstalled the driver, put valid settings from another laptop I have, I've uninstalled Bonjour, i've put netsh commands.. still nada. The USB connection I could use to tether also stopped working. I've tried other wifi connections and they don't work either. The strangest thing is that itunes won't recognize the phone, but windows does and i can go inside the folders.
I have the 169.254.x.x ipconfig forgot the name but like I've read here before it can't get to DHCP.

The laptop is 6 months old lenovo windows 7.
Would really appreciate some input on what else to try. Thank you!

Answer:Solved: Not valid ip configuration plus UBS tether fail PLUS itunes phone fail

I have a custom built PC, installed with Windows XP. Lately its been having trouble, but it is full blown rebellion as of last night. I think its probably a virus but I'm not that experienced with diagnosing.
`My web browser (FireFox) crashes when trying to view certain things; PDF files are the main crash point
`I have a 16 GB flash drive that I have to reformat it every time I use it, which doesn't fix the problem it just lets me transfer again until I have to format it again.
`I have two hard drives that make up c,d,e,f,i,j,and k drives. When I opened "My Computer" I,J,and K:/ were missing. I couldn't see or access them.
`Its been freezing up a lot; forcing me to reboot
`(most recent)Now when I try to reboot it will rapidly switch screens from the black scanning, log in, windows xp (with the blue bar filling up), and a blue error screen. The blue error screen says to reboot if its the first time i've seen this; then it gives steps to follow if i've seen it before.

I've tried to run it in safe mode and it hasn't worked.

Please if you have any ideas let me know. Is it possible to recover my saved files? I backed up my files awhile ago but it is saved on a drive that is missing (I,J,or K) If you need more info just ask. Thanks for your help

Answer:Windows XP Crash Issues - Hard Drive fail, start up fail

Hi there
So what I gather is that you now cannot start your computer up at all, due to this issue. I'm actually unsure of the problem, it sounds to me like a Virus has been at your computer. It can't really be a hardware issue I don't think... I mean it is possible that what could have been happening is that your computer (Desktop or Laptop?) is overheating and its been damaged because of that... But that wouldn't really make sense, and also having Custom Built a computer I'm sure you'd have been smart enough to install a thoroughly capable cooling system.
It sounds to me like your hard drive has been corrupted though, BSOD usually means a pretty big issue. Thats why I was thinking hardware problem to begin with, you don't often get it for Virus's.
A couple of things we need to know:
Do you have any sort of Anti-Virus installed? If so, which one? How frequently did it scan? Did you find any virus's?
Also, how far into the boot process does the computer get before it loops? Are you able to enter BIOS settings before Blue Screen comes up and it loops? What happens when it loops?
And do you have a startup / boot disk for your computer. You certainly should do.
