Every time I am on the Internet and click on a link, the
page locks up and I have to hit ctrl,alt,delete to close
the page and then it says "program not responding."
Everything else works fine, I just can't click on a link.

More about : clicking links

When i click on certain links they do not direct me anywhere. For example, I
will be at www.comcast.net, and when i select the mail center icon on the top
it will not do anything further. The same at www.janemag.com, half of the
links will open and the other half do absolutely nothing. My pop up blocker
is off, and it also happened when i tried to post a topic on this site. It's
becoming very frustrating. any help would be appreciated!!!
