I'm not sure if this will work with your hyperlinks, but a few people have said
that this has resolved the problem for them:

File|Properties|Summary Tab|Hyperlink Base
change it to C:\
(something that's always available)

Somebody recommended me:
With the regedit locate the
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\C ommon and Add new Add
DWord Value with HypAlternateResolveToRel with value 1 and the problem was
corrected.
Thank you
