I have a couple of problems. The first one is when I click on a webpage link in IE, either it doesn't load completely or loads but closes immediately - for example, when I click a link to see an enlarged version of a picture on a webpage. I have already turned the pop-up blocker off and have changed some of the security settings but they did not solve the problem. I am using XP SP2 and have Microsoft Anti-Spyware, Spybot and Ad-Aware SE Pro installed. And I think my Netgear router has a firewall.
My other problem is opening a shockwave flash object. When I click on the file, I'm given two search options and when I chose to search the web it gives me a choice between IrfanView32 and Macromedia Flash. I have installed Flash and Shockwave Players and IrfanView but I still can't open the file.
I'd greatly appreciate any help. Thank you very much.
