    I'm currently using internet explorer 6.0 and everytime I go to www.staples.ca and try to go to a department it just links me back to the same page (staples homepage). for example, under the furniture section I click chairs and chairmats and it will just link me back to the same page. what is wrong with my browser. I also try using Netscape and same problem.

    Hi swongd!

    When I go there, I get presented with a Security Alert window that tells me that I am 'about to view pages over a secure connection', and continuing brings me to a page where I enter my Postal Code, for accurate info on products in my area.

    Entering a secure site

    You are attempting to make a secure connection to this Web site. This Web site provides secure communication and has a valid certificate. Secure communication means that information you provide, such as your name or credit-card number, is encrypted so that it can’t be read or intercepted by other people. The certificate is a statement verifying the security of this Web site. A certificate contains information that a specific Web site is authentic. This ensures that no other site can assume the identity of the original site.

    When you enter a secure Web site, Internet Explorer displays this dialog box and a lock icon in a locked position on the status bar. When you leave a secure Web site, Internet Explorer displays a dialog box to notify you.
    If you want to see this dialog box whenever you have entered a secure Web site, make sure the check box named In the future, do not show this warning is clear.

    Check your Security settings in Internet Explorer
    Tools>Internet Options...>
    Security Tab

    It may have something to do with certificates.
    See if you can restore the Security level for the Internet zone to the default level.
