    Started yesterday, when I click on a link the little finger appears when the pointer moves over the link, but clicking does not open the linked page. If the link is shown I can copy and place in the browser and it will open. If it is hidden with a name or photograpy etc nothing happens and i can not get to the link without going to View Source and copying the link. How do I get this click to open working again. In the meantime is there a keyboard solution?

    If Internet Explorer is your browser,

    Click Start > Run

    Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll.

    Click OK.

    Click OK again.

    Repeat the Start > Run... procedure with the following commands in this order, maybe checking after each for returning function:
    • regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
    • regsvr32 mshtml.dll
    • regsvr32 browseui.dll

    regsvr32 mshtml.dll returned an error message as follows:
    mshtml.dll was loaded, but the Dll RegisterServer entry point was not found. This file cannot be registered.
