Add/Remove Programs > highlight Microsoft Internet Explorer > click Add/Remove > select Repair > Next > OK.
Reboot when finished and test.
When I click a hyperlink from within a web page, i.e. a link to pbase from within the Nikon Talk forum, all I get is a medium sized transparent frame, the clicked on URL does not show in the address bar of the resulting frame.
The action goes no farther no matter how long I wait.
I have no pop-up blocker running except the one that Google provides . . . deactivating that has no effect.
Your help will be appreciated.
