While browsing on the internet,on certain web pages I visit,when I click onto links from them I get no response. I use AOL and have XP as my operating system.Could anyone please advise?

Hi Heinzy
do you have a firewall ? because I believe these can cause problems getting to web pages?

Do you have a pop-up stopper? If so you may need to SHIFT+CLICK or CTRL+CLICK to get them to open.

I have no firewall and no pop-up stopper!

I'm not sure about AOL but this is a fix for Internet Explorer


Copy the above, paste into address bar, delete the space after // click Go and follow the repair procedure.

I think you will find it is the built in security of AOL you should be able to override it in the settings

you can try changing the access numbers that you use to get onto aol, maybe that will help?

You SHOULD have a firewall
