cannot find PROGRAM ?????

By Elemental ·
Hello Tech Gurus,

I'm not sure if this is the correct BOARD to post this question, if it's not please advise.

I recently got a compaq deskpro 4000 from a friend; his company was updating their computers.

Although I receive several techrepublic emails regularly, i.e.; win95/98 tips, win2000 tips, security solutions, disaster recovery... I'm still quite the novice in many respects, as my question below will confirm.

I've been having a problem with links in all emails I receive. when I click on the link I get a message saying - cannot find PROGRAM -

I have exhausted what little knowledge I do have in trying to correct the problem but I've had no luck.

What is causing this to happen?
How can I correct this problem?
The OS is windows 98se plus

I would appreciate any help

Thank You,

Jose Antonio

Are you talking about internet links? If so, check out this website:

If you are talking about links to files like Word, Excel etc then reinstall the offending app.

Sounds to me like the plug in isn't associating with the correct program to launch the attachment straight from Internet Explorer. Take a look at the type of file you are receiving and re-install that software. If it's zip files, reinstall winzip, pdfs - reinstall acrobat reader, docs - reinstall word/office, etc.
