  I'll have a look around my PC and see what it was I did to stop this 
happening.

  Of course, there is always the option of uninstalling the BT Yahoo browser if 
you don't want it.

  Hi John

  I tried re-setting the option in both control panel and IE itself, went into 
my e-mail with the internet link and it's still not working.

  Any more ideas?

  Thanks a lot.

    Hi Wendy,

    You actually have to run internet explorer for it to take effect.

    Hi John

    Thanks for that. I went in and found the option in programs that said 
something like Internet Explorer should check whether it is the default 
browser. I made sure this was checked and it's still not working. Do I have to 
reset something to make IE the default brouser as obviously what I'm checking 
in terms of the box is purely asking IE to check whether it is the default 
browser and it isn't. 

    Thanks.

      Hello Wendy,

      This is probably because when you installed the BT software it sets 
itself up as the default browser.

      You should have IE set up as the default browser and then this may not 
occur.

      A way of doing this is to go into internet options, either from the 
control panel or IE itself. In the tabs on the top the last one is programmes. 
Check the box which says something like "IE should check to ensure it is the 
default browser". 

      Then, when you click on a link in an e-mail you should go to IE rather 
than the BT browser.

      Unless you want to use something specific in the BT Yahoo browser you 
will probably find that IE will cover your needs.

      Hi all

      I wonder if anyone using BT Yahoo may be able to help with this.

      Whenever I receive an e-mail with a direct internet link in it, when 
clicking on the link I don't go straight to the site in question but into the 
sign in page at BT Yahoo. It asks me to sign in and gives me the list of users 
registered but there's no link to sign in with my password (it doesn't ask me 
for it so consequently I can't sign in). 

      Is there a way that BT Yahoo can be bypassed to allow you to click 
straight onto an internet link?

      Thanks a lot.

      Wendy
