    I had a little play and disabled Flash in an attempt to speed up my page loading. (It seems to have worked.)
    However, now when I click on a link, I have to do so twice to get the page to load, (new window.)

    I have run Spyware Blaster and unchecked the kill bit as I was unable to get any links to work, but now I need to click the link twice, (the first time the page only part appears.) Not doubleclick, but actually click the link a second time as the page refuses to fully appear.
    I even System Restored it earlier, but then I could not get online atall, so rolled it back again.

    Many thanks in advance on rectifying my stupidity.

    The page loading problem seems to have rectified itself somehow.

    I reset the changes I could remember I'd made, (old brain :confused:) and all seems well again, though I still seem to have blocked the flashing banners, which is no bad thing.

    There is an IE "page cannot display webpage" message there instead.
