    As per my opinion regarding this issue though the applications where you are not able to follow up any link there are the package of Microsoft office tool application, so for this the problem might be at the office tool application also, for the confirmation go for do the same process with other browser, if the similar issue is occurring then simply got for the solution regarding the office tool application.

    Microsoft Word will create different links, it depending on how you create them and where the documents are located at that time. When you create via "Insert Hyperlinks link and the selected object in the same folder as the current document, creates a relative link that contains only the file name of the object.
    If the object on the same drive as the current document is created, a link that is relative - for example in the form "<directory> / <document. However, it is on a different drive or the current document is not saved, Word creates an absolute link, such as "D: \ \ <directory> \ \ <document" - i,e including drive specification. So, if you insert the hyperlink and then drag and drop the "Create Hyperlink Here" with the context menu, Word creates absolute links in each link that you insert.

    When copying the files from browser to your PC is always likely to be problems: the relative links will work only if all relevant objects are not only copied, but then the corresponding folder structure. The Word document and link of all files are in the same folder. Where does this folder will then land is not important. Links with absolute paths only work if the link-objects are copied exactly to the Appropriate drive in the exact same folder. To repair broken hyperlinks to hide by Alt - F9 a field codes. The link addresses can then directly edit the text. You can then use Edit, Replace to replace several references at once. You can also able to use these path separator ("\ \" or "/").

    As per my opinion I you should reload the browser, for this run the installation program and at the beginning it will direct you to remove the existing one, go for this and alsoremove other contained files from temporary folder and from the windows registry editor. Now proceed for the fresh installation. Few months ago I was also facing similar issue, any hyperlink or the other links was not open or functioning in MS word or other office application, I searched everywhere and applied many of them. Nothing was happened, then I simply did this reload process and the problem was solved by this, I hope it will also help you to overcome from the problem that you mentioned.
