Windows Sidebar opens items with MS Word inst

Whenever I try to go to websites to look for more gadgets, or f.ex. open the Met Office website, the sidebar opens MS Word instead of using Internet Explorer; therefore I get nowhere!

This is a recent event, I can't find anything written in manuals etc to enlighten me. I run Windows Vista.

Anybody got suggestions, please?

System Restore to before this started?

Well yes, I will try that, it's just that I'm not completely sure how far back to go! As there's been loads of windows updates recently, I didn't fancy that but I will try! Thanks.

I've now carried out System Restore to 4 weeks ago which I am sure was far enough, but it makes no difference to the function of the sidebar!

Remember you can reverse the system restore to save doing all those Windows updates
