Miz gave you list of possible solutions to your problem did you work through This One in particular.
Another suggestion would be upgrading your Internet Explorer to at least 5.5 SP2 which will probably fix the problem, be more secure and offer an internal repair function to use if future problems arise.

Click Here to download IE5.5 SP2 with tools.

Note: The download is rather large so reserve appropriate time if you do it.

When the new window opens try clicking stop and then GO or refresh and tell me if it opens the link. If it does there is a fix for it.

Let me know if you try it and I would be happy to share the fix that was shared with me.

I'm very happy to share what steamwiz shared with me.


Most likely the oleaut32.dll is corrupt.............

If you have 98 this will do it......if you have a different version of windows it works just a little different.

Just let us know if it fixes the problem.

<cut>
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.
