Hi there all I am having probs with both IE and Firefox ( both latest editions ) both programmes have problems loading a link page or a referral page from websites. have done all the usual maintenance things of clearing cache, registry cleans,browser history but this problem just has me beaten.

Had a similar thing some years ago i think with bugbear? or a similar sounding virus

any help appreciated

keep smiling guys

What exactly happens when you click on a link, you haven't said, does it open a new window and nothing happens?

duh sorry i forgot to mention the symptoms

what happens is :- the page looks as if is going to load but all you get is a blank page and on firefox the ascending loader bar gets about halfway and then just hangs.

what is weird is that it does the same in internet explorer so surely that cant just be coincedence can it ?

Try copying and pasting VoG™'s link and give that a run, that program is for IE so I'm not sure if it will fix Firefox as well.

Think this is VoG™ s link if any help click here

Are you saying the hyperlinks will not load or is it any page will not load....Are you using the the pc in question to write on here ?

You said the same problem in IE and FF,if you have both set as your default browser...this will cause problems as the link will not know what one to use.

Reset IE to default browser click here

This may be quicker in IE

alan in spain can't open links, hence the reason VoG™ posted his link the way he did. That's the reason he is asking for help.

Doh !..... cheers Octal,teach me to read better first time round.Still a little jetlagged,well thats my excuse anyway.

That's OK, go anywhere nice?

Hope you don't mind I've reposted your link putting a space after the http:// and the www for alan in spain to remove.
