Links not working

  newearwax 09:06 12 Nov 2004

I don't know when it started but I am finding that links from OEx6 to web pages and things like unsubcribe to newsletters are not working, I have Zone Alarm v5 free and 2 Antivirus- AVG7 free and Avast 4.1 home installed with only one operational at a time, The difficulty occurred before AVG 7 was installed and before Avast. Before Avast I was usung AVG 6. Suggestions please will be gratefully received as to what May be causing problem.

to Repair IE

Oddly I cannot locate IE on control panel listings. Is it part of another program and if it is where? I've tried to locate its position but can find nothing that will enable me to repair. If you can help me locate and also to replace on control panel much gratitude!

Go to Control Panel/Add or remove Programs/Add or remove Windows Components? make sure Internet Explorer is ticked, Highlight it and click next. Follow instructions you will need your XP CD (I am assuming XP)

Looked up and down Control panel Add remove progs several times but no sign of
Add or remove Windows Components. Another snag is that i do not have an XP CD as such only a produvt recovery CD-rom. Any further suggestions. BTW system is Eveshams if that will be of use to anyone.

Teh windows components section should be to the right of the panel for add/remove programs, rather than in the listing.

I think that Diodorus Siculus has made a mistake, when you open Add or Remove Programs, down the LEFT hand side are 4 buttons Change or Remove Programs, Add new Programs, Add or Remove Windows components which is the one you want finally, set program access defaults. Click on Add or remove windows components and follow my earlier guide. I am not sure about your recovery CD but try it, you can't do any harm, if IE is not on there it will ask for the correct disc. If it does post back I think there is an alternative way round it.

rawprawn - "blushing" - yes, on the left, not the right...
