I am running Windows 98SE with a broadband connection. For some reason over the past few weeks my Internet Explorer seems to lock up sometimes when I click a link on a web page or an icon on a web page. It kind of stalls, and the little globe stops spinning then in a few minutes the page will either pop up or you hear a click and I'm back at the same page I was on and nothing else happens. If I click the link or icon again the same thing happens. If I just click on a favorites link that page will come on.
This problem only seems to occur when I click on a link from a web page that I am already viewing.
If I try to do the same thing on the same page through my AOL it works fine.
I even deleted my pop up blocker program, thinking that it might be the problem, but it is still the same.
Is there anything else I can check or do to help this problem? It did work before and works in AOL so I know something must have gotten changed somehow recently.
Any help would be appreciated.
