Links open wrong thing

    Something has changed on my browser so that now when I click on a link on a
    web page, or a link in Outlook, instead of taking me to the address, it
    opens a new window in IE7 and takes me to my home page.
    I'm also confused because Mozilla is set to be my default browser, yet it
    opens IE. I've gone through Control Panel and looked at Internet Options
    but don't see any settings in there that would seem to help.
    I tried Google but I don't seem to be asking the right question.
    I'm using XP-Pro.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You just installed IE7 and now default is set to IE.
    I'm not on IE7 box right now to walk thru CP steps, so ... for now manually
    open Firefox - make IT the default.
    And check the box to " ASK to make default if changed". I use that on both
    so I have option of changing my mind.
