I am running Windows XP Home Edition on my PC. I have been having a problem with links for a while now. When I click on a link in my email, or a link in a webpage that would normally open in a new IE window, my screen just flashes and nothing happens. This has been frustrating, but I haven't figured out how to solve it.
I started my fall classes, and one of the sites I need for school is a forum where the links open in new windows. To get around this normally, I have been right clicking on the link, going to properties and pasting the web address into my address bar. In the school forum this doesn't work. I just get the main forum page and I am unable to read the messages on the forum. I really need to be able to read these messages, some of my coursework depends on it.
As I said, it only seems to affect links that open in a new browser window and emailed links. Does any one have any ideas? I am desperate now!
