I have see this somewhere, but can't remember ir it was solved.
After an update on XP sp1, when i click on a link to a website nothing happens. Some of the programs like Webshots give an error of website not found. I have even gone so far as to reload the program, but nothing. But the other links are a no go.
Any suggestions.

I have done a system restore, to the earliest time i could, but no avail.

Thanks

Thank you, I haven't tried it yet, but may. I am kinda leary about the issue, but I suspect that I can always do a system restore if it doesn't work. :confused: Any ideas? If that would help in-case it really messes it up?? :)

If you click on a hyperlink in a web page and only a blank window appears,

Go to Start / Run
Then enter regsvr32 urlmon.dll
Click Ok when finished

If that single change does not resolve the problem, repeat the process by running the following additional entries:
regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 Msjava.dll
regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 Mshtml.dll
regsvr32 Browseui.dll
regsvr32 Shell32.dll (Windows XP and Windows 2000 only)

There have been several instances where the previous tip using regsrv32 does not solve the problem with hyperlinks not working.

In this case try:

Open Internet Explorer
Go to Tools / Internet Options
Click on the Programs tab
Click on the Reset Web Settings button

Well BIG THANKS Bob that so far did the trick. :D

Open Internet Explorer
Go to Tools / Internet Options
Click on the Programs tab
Click on the Reset Web Settings button


As they say I tried the quick fix, I have done all the other stuff to no avail, but resetting the web settings did the trick.
Again thanks
As they say you can teach an old dog new tricks.
