I have just upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 Ultimate with IE9 to Windows 8 with IE 10. When ever I try to open a web link in an application nothing happens.
For example in the Windows 8 mail application it makes the email address in an email look like a link. When I click on these with the mouse the link changes to look like I have clicked on it, but aside from that nothing happens.
I have tried making sure that IE 10 is my default web browser and been into IE10's settings and associated it with all the usual file types, but still no success. Has anyone got any ideas what might be causing this?
I have a feeling this started when the Browser Choice update ran. I couldn't select which browser to install in that either. The install buttons just flashed when I clicked them and then nothing.
Something else I tried was going into the Programs and Features control panel and removing IE10 rebooting and then going in and adding it back. This does not seem to have fixed the issue either.
UPDATE: This is now sorted. A very helpful chap from Microsoft Support deleted a registry key that was causing the issue, though I didn't quite catch which one.
