I cannot open web page links

  [DELETED] 14:40 05 Sep 2003


I am having a problem with accessing links everywhere.

When I press the link a new page comes up but there is nothing there just have the surrounding bars. I have the hour glass but nothing loads so I get fed up of waiting and cancel. I am with Virgin and am usng a Speedtouch 330 modem. I have repaired IE6 checked for spyware and virus' and now I am completely out of ideas.

I e-mailed Virgin support but they have not got back to me.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Copy this, paste into address bar, remove the space after // and click Go.

Follow the instructions.

Or try Proxomitron (it's in Downloads or Sept 2003 issue cover disk of Computer Sho---r!).

If you do install Proxomitron make sure that you follow the instructions exactly(!); when filling in website order form fields etc you may have to use the Bypass facility temporarily.

Proxomitron also prevents adverts and popups appearing.
