    Hi,
    When I click on a link the link won't open up, instead the image of the link will go to the left of the computer without opening up but the IP address is still at the bottom tray. When I click on the IP address on the bottom tray,the image that went to the upper left hand corner comes back from the upper left hand corner to the IP address at the bottom of the tray. If I right click on the IP address and click on "open in new window" the link still won't open but the page of the IP address opens.

    Serious Help Only

    Sp2 I think. Where would I find 1explore.exe to download it because I need that file to complete the Iefix download
    How do I delete some of my posts?

    Right click on My Computer
    Select: Properties
    On the General tab it should say what Service Pack is installed.


    Does the link problem also occur from e-mail messages or is this just within the browser?

    Which browser do you normally use?

    I have Service Pack 2. The link problem occur only when Internet Explorer is open. I'm missing file 1explore.exe; where do I go to download that file?

    My apologies for the delay. :(
    I hope you were able to fix this in the meantime, if not...

    Not sure what you mean by you are missing this file: 1explore.exe
    Do you mean Iexplore.exe?
    Which would not be missing if you are able to use Internet Explorer. :confused:
    There is no file called 1explore.exe for Internet Explorer.

    You cannot open a new Internet Explorer window or nothing occurs after you click a link


    Control Panel > Internet Options > Programs tab
    Uncheck: Internet Explorer should check to see if it is the default browser

    Click the Reset Web Settings button
    Apply, OK, to save and close.
    ________________________________________________________________

    Open My Computer or Windows Explorer:
    Tools > Folder Options > File types tab,
    check under each of these file types to see if their settings show the following:

    • URL:File Transfer Protocol
      "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" %1
    • URL:Gopher Protocol
      "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome
    • URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol
      "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome
    • URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy
      "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome

    Check each Registered File Type:

    Click Advanced,
    Click on the action: Open,
    Click Edit
    Look in the: Application used to perform action: window to check your settings.

    DDE should be checked and in the boxes below it you should have:

    #1:
    "%1",,-1,0,,,,
    #2
    IExplore
    #3 (blank)

    #4
    WWW_OpenURL
    Sometimes it is necessary to uncheck Use DDE.

    Internet shortcuts in Outlook Express do not start Web browser

    Was Service Pack 2 installed from the Windows update site, or does your Windows XP CD contain Service Pack 2?
