    Still aint working in Win7 Pro tried ithe fix above & did a restart still hyperlinks in pages sent to my email do NOT work. What did Mr Softee scree up this time. Or is this part of the Google War/Microsoft War where Mr Softee is trying to STOP google at their Search engine and cross scripting? Or you weren’t aware of the war… well there is one going on… Starting with the new Mozilla FF that uses Yahoo as a search engine instead of Google..

      You can change it from inner settings. Click on Tools menu >> Manage Addons >> Search Provider >> Make the search engine default which you want.
