    Default When clicking on link in Explorer 9 it is opening in Word "read only"

    When clicking on a link in explorer 9 it is opening in Word (Office Home and Student 2007) as read only.

    Why is this?

    Does it have anything to do with recent updates for Security for Microsoft Office Word 2007.

    Default

    What is the file type....if it is a doc file and Word is the default program...that would be normal

    If it is a file type that you want to open in a different program ....we can change it

    Default

    Sorry for the delay in replying. I can not remember what I had clicked on in Explorer 9. But I have the same problem when clicking on a link in Windows Mail and in my Antivirus which is Avast.

    When I click on a link, a small box appears on the top right hand which loads up then Word Document read only appears.

    I have tried saving it in another program but that did not work.

    Is there anything I can do to correct this?

    Default

    I have found out how to solve this problem by reading a previous question and answer in Microsoft Community.

    Make sure that Internet Explorer is your default web browser.

    Go to Start/Default Program/Set Default Program/Internet Explorer/Set this program as default/OK

    It worked for me.
