I did some stupid things and ended up deleting AppData. Since then, no links to websites have worked on any program other than internet browsers. These are things like "forgot password" links in game clients and links to websites in pdf documents. Can anyone help?

Windows 7 64 bit OS

Note: If I set my default browser to IE it works, but not when I set it to Chrome

Could it be as simple as re-setting your default browser in the control panel? – terdon Dec 3 '12 at 19:32
Try re-installing chrome – MaQleod Dec 3 '12 at 19:41
Chrome is partly installed in Appdata. You deleted Appdata. Now Chrome doesn't work. How is this even a question? – qwertyuiop Jan 21 at 16:30
