Problem with Outlook

I am using Windows XP and Office Professional XP with Outlook 2002 SP3.

For the past few months when I open an email with any weblink in it when I click on the link a window opens with SELECT LANGUAGE in the blue band and below if a list with US English, French, German. Spanish and Italian and OK or Cancel. Clicking any of the options it then tries to install Adobe Flash Player (which is already on my machine) but nothing else happens and I cannot open the site.

If I go on to any website and click a link there it opens OK it is just clicking links in an email that is causing the problem.

Also another separate problem. Am I right in saying there is a setting in the computer which limits the number of windows that can be open at any one time ? I go in to a chat site which takes basically 3 windows to get in and more often than not when I then open and minimise 3 or 4 chat windows everything freezes. When you do Ctr Alt Del you hear a dull thud and nothing happens and you have to reboot from the soft reboot switch on machine.

Sometimes it freezes when there are 6 windows open and other times it freezes at 10.

Using XP Professional with 512 MB memory and loads of disk space.
