Clicking buttons, nothing happens

I have Windows XP and use Norton Firewall, Norton AntiVirus,Webroot Spy Sweeper,Ad-Aware SE Personal and Spybot 1.3. In the Spy Sweeper window at the bottom right, if I click over the keyhole that reads " Click here to visit Webroot site " nothing happens. With Norton Firewall when I click " Check Security " nothing happens, also with Ad-Aware, when I click for upgrade information , again nothing happens. I would be grateful for any help.

Mary,

Possibly you've got some intruders that inhibit visiting these sites to make sure they won't be detected. Things to try (ask for more information if necessary):
- rename hosts
- online scan with panda or housecall
- study the msconfig startup list
It might be difficult to find.

Thanks for the advice Kees, will try a scan with Panda as soon as I can. Mary T.
