    hyperlinks suddenly don't open on windows 8.1 mail app


    since a week ago
    i can't open any hyperlink on my windows 8.1 mail app.

    i connected my google account to it, everything worked fine before.

    i fount a possible solution to delete CLSID folder from registry but that didn't do the trick.

    any other suggestions?

    ok, solved it.
    windows firewall service was disabled, after activating it problem solved.
    also solved a problem that new apps could not be installed.
