www.awin1.com - "webpage cannot be found" ???

  compumac 22:51 25 Nov 2009

I have been browsing on the web and on quite a number of websites - when clicking on a link I receive the message "The webpage cannot be found" and the webpage is always shown as "click here" for each of the unrelated webpages. I cannot fathom out as to why so many different websites are connected with click here. Any thoughts out there?

It only happens when googling and clicking on some of the links shown. I already have and run on a regular basis, a squared antimalware.

Just dawned on me - Others have been using my PC over the past few weeks and with using a squared antimalware a dialogue box comes up warning of posssible problems. In their wisdom others have clicked on "deny". I found that click here was denied in a squared antimalware Background Guard!!!
