    Links open web browser which then closes

    When I click on a link in an email message, Internet Explorer will open, then immediately close the linked site and go back to the page that was already open when i clicked the link. If I click a link within IE, it works fine which makes me think it's an Outlook problem. I scanned my computer with the latest Norton AV software and it came up clean. Has anyone seen this behavior before?

    Do you remember installing or upgrading any software around the time this started happening? It sounds as though some process running on your computer is watching for new browser windows and closing them, like perhaps a not-very-smart pop-up blocker.

    I haven't installed anything in the past month except the Microsoft updates.
