I have one user who is having an issue with Act! Premium Version 188.8.131.52, Hot Fix 2. When the email address is clicked on in ACT it crashes the application. I have applied windows updates but the issue continues.
This is a Windows 10 Pro machine that is 64 bit. I cannot replicate this error on any other Windows 10 machines in our office. I reapplied the hotfix but got the same result.
Any help would be much appreciated.

The reason is an underlying problem caused by Microsoft last year.
Here are some knowledge base articles covering the topic:
The only solution I know at the moment is to roll back Office to a stable build from April '17 (after having switched OFF automatic updates for Office): 16.0.7870.2038
Switch off Office update inside Office:
Create a batch file "2016_Office_UpdateTo16.0.7870.2038.bat"
with following content:
cd %programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ClickToRun officec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=16.0.7870.2038
Run it "as Administrator

I think I may have made things worse. I tried to uninstall and reinstall but it is asking for an SA password but if I try a blank password it does not work, if I try the true ACT SA password it still does not work. I am stuck at it asking for SA.

Thank you much, I will try that when the employee goes to lunch. My thinking is that when she clicks on the email address in act it should open a email in outlook that has the email address she clicked on. Does that sound right?
