Hyperlink launches Internet Explorer - NOT NAVISION

Nav 2009 client on Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit).

I have 1..yes just one...computer that simply will not launch Navision via an Excel 2010 link. All others do.

Here is what I have:

1.Excel 2010 spreadsheet with hyperlinks to specific Navision accounts.
***The spreadsheet was exported from Navision in the first place.
2. User is to click on the link and it "should" launch Navision.
3. Instead, the link launches Internet Explorer.

What am I missing?

    Check the Windows registry on that PC if it contains the correct entry for [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\navision\shell\open\command]. It should refer to finhlink.exe. See this thread Problem opening Navision with a URL

    That was my next step - export a "good" reg setting from another user's machine and import it into the stubborn one. Our client executable is finsql, but the reg file shoud reference finlink.exe is that correct?

    Thank you by the way!
