I changed my user directory name on Windows 7 as one of the development tools I'm using couldn't handle spaces in this directory's name. Since then, when I click links or when programs try to pop-up a browser, nothing happens. How can I fix this?


  • Right click on google talk \ inbox - doesn't open my default browser with gmail
  • Clicking on links people send me in Skype doesn't do anything
  • Clicking on links embedded in Word documents
  • etc...

Try changing your default browser to something else and back again
