All links open in word Tags: Configuration Microsoft Word Registry Windows 7 Last response: February 23, 2013 2:00 PM in Windows 7 Share Taliseth February 20, 2013 12:02:03 AM First of all before you all call me stupid and tell me to search, I have already done that and it did not work I restarted the computer I checked file ascociations I reset the file ascociations I Checked all the program defaults I edited the registry by using the files here: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/19449-default-file... None of it works, so.... my question how do I fix this, short from uninstalling MS Word? More about : links open word ratedk February 20, 2013 9:29:41 PM The link you provided, you tried to use the EXE fix, & possibly the LNK fix (those would be the ones I try first). If so, have you tried to restore to an earlier point in time before the problem occurred? m 0 l Taliseth February 20, 2013 10:51:29 PM I have yet to try restoring, must have slipped my mind. As stated above, using the .exe and .lnk fix did not 'fix' it. I shall try the restore option. If that doesn't work any other solutions? I think it goes a bit far to have to uninstall word just to make this problem stop.. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Taliseth February 23, 2013 2:00:47 PM using windows restore was just the same as uninstalling office... oh well guess I'll install it again. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
