Internet explorer

Windows XP service pack 2, AMD 3000 1Gb RAM,

HI! my windows explorer seems to act up lately, and I wonder what the cause may be?! When I click on a hyperlink I either get a blank white window with the system just ''hanging'' or standing by and never opening or showing the contents , or they (hyperllinks)don't seem to work at all. I have done the necessary updates and I have no virus or adware on my system , yet I don't seem to get the things open... any advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Bob

mythman3, if you mean Internet Explorer and not Windows Explorer go to the link below and follow the instructions under the Resolution section. Many times registering the referenced dll files corrects the problem. Also make sure that Internet Explorer is set as your default browser.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
