Does right-clicking on the link then click 'Open' doesn't work too?
If the resolution in http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=281679 didn't help, try to re-install Internet Explorer or run System File Checker (SFC) to check the system files for damaged or corrupted files.
To re-install Internet Explorer in Windows XP:
Click Start>Run then type rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\Inf\ie.inf
Note: You need to have your XP CD available
To run SFC:
From Start>Run type CMD then hit enter. Type SFC /scannow
You will also need your XP CD available for the above.
I already post in Windows XP forum, but maybe the problem could well be related to a virus, so, here it is again..
Website link does not work, only on certain site and..only on certain user account (admin or limited)
Windows XP SP1 with all critical update, norton AV 2003.
3 users, 1 administrator, 1 user with admin level, 1 Limited user.
Previously I have no problem with all users account..
Using 'Administrator' everything are OK.
Using User account w/ Admin level OR Limited user account, I can not click 'almost any link'
I only notice the problem only in www.google.com and www.yahoo.com, I can not click any link available.
When I click the link.. nothing happen..
Tried www.pcworld.com (and other) everything normal.
Check with NAV, and trendmicro online scan.. Clean.
Check with Adaware 6.181 (latest update) Clean.
Check with Spybot SD, Clean.
Create new user account .. samething.. doesn't work either.
Problem 2: I can not download a file from ftp site -- when the file I want to download have an ftp link.. I can not download, I can get the file using download utility such as 'Stardownloader'
What happened here and how can I fix it?
Note: that reregistering some module in registry, as suggested by this link -- http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=281679
