When i click on a link that starts with the above address, and then goes on to the proper web address, it always says "Page cannot be displayed". It happens on any sites that use this "click counter" (i presume thats what it is). The one that it's done it on recently is "pricelook.co.uk" which searches all auctions taking place. I am on NTL 600K broadband. Anyone know how to rectify this so i can follow my links??

Take a look at the file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (or C:\Windows\hosts if you're running Win 9x/Me). After several comment lines starting with #, it should have one line that says: localhost .

If that's OK, you've probably got a corrupt cookie or something. You could also check your firewall, which might have some kind of site-blocking feature.

Nice one, that was the problem, the 'hosts' file, it had a load of servers blocked by 'Spybot'. I just deleted those entries. Thanks a lot for your help!!
