Unable to open internet link from email directly

I receive emails from (Makro for example) and if I click on a product my PC blocks with a message that security settings are preventing connection.

What do I change to allow the link to work.

This is on a Vista setup.

My XP latop allows me to access internet directly from the same email.

Other emails behave in the same way.

I use IE9 on both machines.

Glad it worked. I guessed that was the problem as all was well with IE8 on the other system and at some stage you must have upgraded to IE9.

Your link is exactly the problem.

I had not looked at your post properly. Thanks for the reminder.

I am going to run the MS fix.

I am creating a restore point before this. Is that sufficient protection?

Thanks for the help.

The MS Fix-It worked and all is well.

It created a restore point and then ran the fix.

Have you checked you are set to receive email as plain text only I think to get click-able links in email you may need to have HTML enabled ?
