Internet Explorer Link Problem

Not a very serious problem, but kinda annoying!

For the last month or so everytime I try to click on a link in Internet Explorer it opens a new blank page. The only way I can see the page is if I right click on the link and select copy shortcut, then paste it into the address bar. This is ok, except for the odd time when for example I right click on a download link (usually downloads link will actually work normally) but sometimes even the right click method doesn't work. Any ideas on what the problem might be and how I could fix it? I don't remember doing anything odd before it this started happening, I'm hoping it might be a common fault and easy to fix *fingers crossed*:D

Go to add/remove & select Internet Explorer to uninstall. A box will pop up & from there choose the 'repair' option. That might fix the problem. :cool:
Had thought of that (sorry should have mentioned before) but IE doesn't show up in add/remove programs so I can't try that option. Any other ideas?

Repairing IE6 in XP Pro

Hi Eve,
To find a way to repair IE6 in XP go to http://www.dougknox.com/ and hit the "Win XP Tips" button on the selection down the left side of the page. From there you will find two columns in blue. your solution should be part way down the left column. Hope this helps. :)

Thanks Allan, you're a star! I have absolutely no idea how it worked, but it did and that's what counts. Thanks again! :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
