Recently, when I click on a link that someone sends me, whether it's through
email or instant messenger, it opens my C drive instead of opening Internet
explorer. I have figured out that I have to right click on it and copy it to
a URL clipboard, then open Internet Explorer and paste it myself. Does anyone
know how to change it back?

Hi

Try this:

From Start>Run type

regsvr32 urlmon.dll

then open Internet Explorer and go to Tools>Internet Options>Programs and
click on 'Reset Web Settings'.
