This just started happening: When I click on a link to a website, whether in email or if I'm already on the internet, the little world up there on the right just keeps turning and turning and nothing opens. I have to paste the address in the address bar each time. Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks,
Sally

can you copy and paste in IE?

can you see your control panel "Add/Remove" or is it blank?

I can copy and paste and I can see the add/remove. I did an IE repair but it didn't do any good.

does it happen on other browsers?

also what if you right clicked and opened in new window? does it react the same?

I only have the one browser (I think) and the result is the same if I right click. Another thing that started happening around the same time is the dreaded blue screen. Mine says, "An exception OE has occurred at 0028:D530864A etc. etc." (I copied the whole thing if you think this might be related).
Thanks.

I don't know how to paste it but here it is:
An exception OE has occurred at 0028:D530864A in V x D AFVXD (01) + 0000164A. This was called from 0028:C183D204 in V X D PPPMAC (04) + 00007B14. It may be possible to continue normally.

I am 90% sure it is a memory error as it is crashing on a virtual device driver (VXD).

no problem. sorry it will cost money to fix it.

one thing to check is that if you have 2 sticks in it then you can take one out at a time and see which stick it is. if you only have one then you can't do that.
