click a link and have to click somewhere else...

  Dmiles 14:22 14 May 2009

I click on a link and rather than the screen coming up like it always used to, I now get a blue marker box somewhere on the botton where I have to click to arrive at my desired screen/programme.
Please, what have I done wrong. Best regards Derek Miles.

Would the simplest way be to use System Restore to a date before this happened?

Sorry Raw, I've been putting up with this for months !!

If it's XP and you have a full installation disk...
Start>Run Type

sfc /scannow
(note the space between 's /')
Press 'Enter' on keyboard
You may be asked for the disk, if so insert it, but don't press anything. Let it get on with it.
It'll check your OS for any missing system file and replace them.
