    Hi Rich,

    Thanks for replying to us with the status of your issue.

    We appreciate you for trying the troubleshooting steps.

    To assist you better, I like to know; are you able to access the link from any different computer?

    I suggest you to start your system safe mode with Networking and check if your able to access the links form Emails. If you are able to access the links in safe mode with networking then perform clean boot in your system.

    Follow the below steps:

    Step 1: To start your system in safe mode with Networking, follow the below steps:

    • Press and hold Shift key and
      your Computer.

    • Select Troubleshoot.

    • Select Advance Option.

    • Select Startup Settings.

    • Follow the on Screen instruction.

    • Select Safe mode with Networking, from the list of options

    Step 2: Perform Clean boot.

    A clean boot is performed to start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program.

    Note: Steps mentioned for Windows 8/8.1, will work fine with Windows 10.

    Disclaimer: Please go through the section: How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot of the Kb article to boot the computer in normal startup after fixing the issue.

    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.
