For the past month or so, links just don't work on my computer. In my email, instant messages, webpages, etc, anywhere! I have to type in the adress in order to go to the site. I can't click on the item on a webpage and go directly there! What is up with this? I have run every virus scanner I have and come up with no problems; etrust pest patrol, registry mechanic, spybot, avg, ireg fix, and ewido anti malware. No problems and the scan didn't fix it. Is it something manual I have to fix? Any ideas?? Thank you for any help you can provide!

I used to have mozilla and i think after i uninstalled it this problem began. Not 100% sure though. I only use IE now. Its the most recent IE too. So maybe the mozilla had something to do with it?
