    sorry for the repeat question
    when I click on a link or windows update(desktop start) nothing happens. I have to reboot in order for them to work. I would be grateful for any help in solving this minor annoyance. thank you Last time I asked this question was so frustrated that I rebooted so I could access the links you all suggested. well today I am having the same problem and I am not going to reboot. Steam suggested to right click and chose open in new window, just did that and didn't work. agaain thank you and if the problem is solved today I promise to write the solution down.

    OK - do you have a link to your other thread, so that we know what you have already tried ?

    Have you replaced the oleaut32.dll file ?

    Hi brindle

    Go to Start/run, and type SFC.
    Choose 'Extract One File From Installation Disk'.
    Type oleaut32.dll, not worrying about its location. Then, click Start.

    Next to 'Restore From', type in or browse for the file’s location, which is probably in the Win98 folder of your installation CD-ROM (typically D:\Win98), or in your Windows\Options\Cabs folder, as the case may be.

    Then, next to 'Save File In', enter C:\Windows\System, and click OK. System File Checker looks for the file, saves it as you requested, and then tells you that 'the file has been successfully extracted'.

    Reboot, and tell us whether that solves your problem.
    It should

    steam

    Well your startup could not be cleaner - so no help there

    I see you have Tweak ui - I don't suppose you remember tweaking anything just before this started happening ?

    Can you explain again when this happens

    I get the impression that when you reboot it's ok for a while - 10 mins, 2 hours, ? - does it only happen some days and not others ?

    Is it only internet links ? and not desktop icons ?

    Is it all links ?
