    It's possible that your anti-virus software (or ISP) has detected viruses or other malware in those particular links on the affected email so is protecting you by refusing to open them.  Another possibility is a configuration issue - can you open links in other email messages?

    Yes , they open okey with others , this one is from our local councils regarding employment .

    Whoever sent the message at the council may not have made them into proper hyperlinks.  Try highlighting the link using your mouse and press ctrl-c (copy) then start your web browser, click in the address bar at the top and press ctrl-v (paste.)

    I don't have a mouse it is a touch pad

    You should still be able to highlight the link using a touchpad - they are just an alternative to a mouse.  See here:
