Hyperlink problem

  no-name 12:39 02 Sep 2004

When I click the 'click here' hyperlinks on this site it just 'hangs' until I click the stop icon, which obviously results in a blank page.

Is this just peculiar to me? or is it a general problem?

I've tried running Ad-aware, rebooting etc but no change.

Thanks crx1600 (and thanks for the shortcut hint - I wouldn't have known) but all DLLs and registry settings OK.

Am now trying the re-install route.

Whilst poking about trying to fix this I've noticed that in IE Tools>Internet Options>Advanced under:

Browsing - the first box is ticked, but there's no description

Multimedia - the first box is ticked, but again no description

Security - the first box is un-ticked, with no description

Could somebody enlighten me as to what these boxes refer, please.

I'm not sure that this will help but I had a problem a few months ago when some links would just not operate.
In my case I finally found that the culprit was an Ashampoo pop up blocker which clearly had some sort of glitch. Once I switched it off and just used the blocker on the Google search bar, I had no further trouble.

Thanks blanco but I don't have a pop-up stopper, but just in case I re-checked my firewall and AV settings.

Like you, some links work but others don't. eg I can't access this site via the link in the e-mail notification but within the site the 'Helproom' etc links work.

The re-install didn't work.

Two further observations:

1 - when the link fails with a 'hang' and I click 'stop' I then get a blank page with the address completed and if I click on 'go' the relevant page loads.

2 - on my bottom bar containing my open documents there is an IE icon described as 'about blank' but nothing happens when I click on it.

Any one any ideas?

From an 'about blank' search on this site I've found the ruairi2 thread so I'm now trying Kapersky.

have you got SPXP2 installed?

If you have then allow this site for pop-ups

madboy33©® no ME.

I've just run Kaspersky - found two trojans, but the problem remains.

Another (new) observation.

I now get after clicking on a 'click here' a, roughly, 6"x4" IE window which captures the element of the page that it opens over - and if I move the window the captured printing moves with it.

This change has come about after using umpteen spy checkers, HijackThis and CWshredder.

The 'about blank' point d/d 3/9 10:37 above seems to relate to NTLworld when I use it as a 'home page' and is probably a red herring. I'm currently using PCA as a homepage and it's not there anymore.

The problem seems to relate to links that open in a new window - when the link replaces my current window there's no problem.

I've now run out of things to try - anyone any suggestions?
