When clicking on a link to a website or another email address contained within the body of a received email my system goes crazy opening multiple screens and not allowing the link. Any suggestions gratefully received.

Have you tried scanning for viruses and spyware/adware, And have you tried looking at Windows Update (http://www.windowsupdate.com) there is an update for outlook that fixes some issues might be worth a try.

Yep I have Spybot and Ad-aware and do regular Windows updates. I think the problem is somewhere in the setup

This may or may not solve your problem but could be worth a try:

Go to Start | Run and type in: REGSVR32 URLMON.DLL
Press OK.
Then go to: Internet Explorer | Tools | Internet Options | Programs | Reset Web Settings.
