Hi,
Would like some advice, I am having problems opening links from web pages.
I am using windows Xp, Zonealarm Pro and Nod32, whenever I click a link on
the page all I get is the eggtimer and no page(s). I have disabled the
firewall and the viruschecker but still the same result. have I overlooked
a setting or is there something I need to enable. Once again I do
appreciate everyone's help
Regards
Bob H


I have tried the format below but still won't work, anymore ideas guys
Regards
BobH


Close Internet Explorer and Outlook Express if either are open.

Start/run "regsvr32 urlmon.dll" (without the quotes)

Control panel/Internet options/programs tab, click on "reset all web
settings"

Reopen and retry the links in Internet Explorer and Outlook Express

Bob,

Only the links? Do you receive your Home page when opening IE? Make sure
your security settings are on 'Default' in Tools > Internet Options >
Security > go thorough each of the 4 zones and click 'default', then OK. You
may also want to click Internet Options > Advanced > 'Restore Defaults' Good
Luck.

It would help if we knew what updates u've done to IE & what
zone the pages r in- look at rt part of Status Bar @ bottom
IE. Any sites in Restricted Zone?

Any advise given is my attempt to show appreciation for all
the excellent help I've received here but I'm no MVP so it
may only apply NUGS (Normally, Usually, Generally, Sometimes Smile

I started experience the same problem - links from websites were simply opening WHITE WINDOWS rather than actually showing the accessed link. A friend suggested that I had installed an update that blocked pop-ups. As I was working as a Webmaster for a site - it was imperative that I access the links. Rolling Eyes

I installed Mozilla Firefox as an alternative browser until I could resolve the problem. Firefox worked just fine albeit a bit slower than Explorer.

After reading responses to the problem posed - I did the Start/Run regsvr32 urlmon.dll - and then checked Explorer again. Looks like that did the trick for me.

I appreciate the help. Laughing
