IE and third party links

Anyone help? - For about the last 10 days I have been unable to open any links. ie: On my home page ( there is a link to BBCi. When I click the link it appears to start to open and then defaults to the home page. The same happens with any of the "click here" links on the discussion threads on this site. Have tried different settings on Security and Privacy in Tools/Internet Options. Was working fine????
Using Internet Explorer on XP Home.

This is one possibility although it does not correspond to exactly the problems that you are experiencing but it cannot do any harm to try http://

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

Follow the instructions.

Alternatively do a search for a file named hosts (no extension) and rename it to hosts.old
