Do you mean that when you try to click certain links, you don't go anywhere? Do you get an error message? If so, please provide.

Has this been a problem from the beginning or did it just start happening?

Do you have antivirus and/or anti-spyware software installed? Do you keep it updated and do you scan regularly?

So what about antivirus and/or antispyware software? What do you have installed? Are the definitions kept updated and have you run a full scan recently?

Since you've had the computer, has this been an issue or was there a time when all the links worked?

Then the first thing you should do is get antivirus software installed and run a scan.

Here's a list of freeware antivirus programs from this post: http://www.geekstogo...re-t101038.html

a-squared - http://www.emsisoft..../software/free/
AntiVir - http://www.free-av.com/
Avast - http://www.avast.com...ast_4_home.html
AVG - http://free.grisoft.com/
BitDefender - http://www.bitdefender.com
ClamWin - http://www.clamwin.com/

You could even go online to http://www.pandasoft.../ActiveScan.htm or http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ for free online virus scans.

If you still have the problem after running the scan, post to the Malware forum. Start here: http://www.geekstogo..._Log-t2852.html.
