I'm unable to access links on web pages.
For example - a thread on a Camping forum has a link from it to - http://tiny.cc/qsdi1
I click on the link and absolutely nothing happens.
This happens on all other links that I've tried on other web pages.
What do I do to allow the link to work?
I've recently bought this computer with Window 7 and my browser is Windows IE.
Any help appreciated.

I would suggest that the first thing you should do is clear your web browser cache.
Tools>Delete browsing history. Check Temporary Internet files. Click Delete

If neither works something more serious is probably amis. Is this happening to all sites? Can you for example access google by typing it into the address bar? By clicking this link?

I cleared the Temporary Internet files, clicked on the Google link you provided and also the 'tiny' link and both worked ok.
I then went back to the original Camping forum and tried the 'tiny' link again and it wouldn't work.
I've also tried a few other links to Youtube and Rapidshare and they still don't work.
Thanks for the reply - but any other thoughts?

Could you link to the original forum? It is possible that the problem is there rather than in your browser.

Thanks for your answers - the links now work ok.
The probable cause of the problem is/was the Pop-up blocker settings.
Changed them around and everything is now alright.
