Have you tried closing IE and OE and clicking Start, Run, type "REGSVR32 URLMON.DLL" and hit enter. Then open up Internet Options, click the Programs tab and hit Reset Web Settings.

You will need to reboot..

Spikeychris, thanks 4 that. Yes, I've tried that. I've tried everything on the click here site. It has changed nothing. It did the first time I did it, but not now. :-((

are you using XP? if so it could be the path to Iexplore has been shortened....

Click Start, point to All Programs, click Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.
Click Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click File Types.


In the Registered File Types box, click URL:File Transfer Protocol, and then click Advanced.
In the Actions box, click Open, and then click Edit.


The Application Used To Perform Action box may display the path to your Web browser as a short file name. Type the path to your Web browser using the full long file name. For example, change:
c:\progra~1\intern~1\iexplore.exe

-to-

c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe (include the quotation marks).

Click OK, click OK again, and then click Close.
Repeat steps 3-6 for the following registered file types:

URL:Gopher Protocol

URL:Hypertext Transfer Protocol

URL:Hypertext Transfer protocol with Privacy

Also see my suggestion for a similar problem in:

click here

which might help, although this is with Win98SE in my case.

Just read your bit about not to use Click Here!

This is what I was referring to:

"I used to have a similar problem with this website, the register and one or two others, yet my bank's secure website held no terrors.
All the fiddling with IE security settings etc made no difference.

My son, an IT support specialist, immediately diagnosed the problem as being connected with adverts, pop-ups etc.

He recommended ditching PopUp Stopper and installing Proxomitron:

click here

There's no install. Extract somewhere in Program Files and run proximitron.exe

Got to IE, Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN Settings. Tick Use Proxy Server... Click Advanced.

Under HTTP enter localhost as address and 8080 as port.

Clear everything else and OK. Tick Bypass proxy for local addresses. OK everything.

It's also worth checking in the connection panel's ISP account(s) that these settings are also listed - I had to do it in both cases.

I immediately had no further problems with this website or any other....:-)"

This gets more stupid - I'm referring, of course, to the http and www prefixes.
