    Can't click hyperlinks

    I've been using windows 8 since its release and I really like it after installing vis start windows 8 start menu since day 2. I never see the metro interface at all so I am 100% happy, but I'm wasting time so here is the issue at hand that I need a fix for.

    I recently uninstalled all of my drivers and updated them. After doing this I can no longer use hyperlinks thru yahoo, gmail, att or any webmail. I also cannot access windows firewall to reset the firewall settings or open the firewall rules or anything on the system which uses a hyperlink. I never had this problem before uninstalling all of my old drivers, installing new ones, and running driver sweeper in between to ensure no driver conflicts.

    How do I fix this? I certainly hope a reinstall isn't my only option.

Can't see hyperlinks: Windows 8 or IE 10?
I'm used to hyperlinks either showing up underscored or bold or something distinctive. On both my Dell PS and my ASUS Tablet, the hyperlinks are not different from the surrounding text. Is there a setting I can change?
