Well this is not a major problem but annoying to me anyway. Whenever I click on links for coupons online, for example couponcabin.com, or Upromise links if you are familiar with Upromise, I get the message page cannot be displayed. I do a lot of online shopping and I used to be able to do this. I tried shutting my zone alarm, and also spybot, etc., to see if that was the culprit but it does not seem to be. When I click on the upromise link, i get a popup that says "congratulations, you have qualified for such and such a discount" but the actual web page for the store, will not open, says it cannot be displayed. So I can't get my online rebates for the Upromise account, or any coupons that are through links. But all other links, like google, and the like, are fine. Is it some security setting in IE?

Any ideas greatly appreciated.

I solved my problem. It was a host file shield in Spysweeper. I turned it off and everything works now.
