Problem with links

by normmacder / October 29, 2004 11:39 AM PDT

I subscribe to several different subjects on Cnet and
other forums. Until a month ago I had no problems, but I do now. When an article has a link such as "read more" or "full story" the "read more" was usually coloured and by clicking on it a link would open. Now the "read more" is black - same as the rest of the article. I would appreciate some help to solve this.

Did you see the "Tip" just above the subject title when you posted this?

I have re-produced it for you;

"If you are asking for help to troubleshoot a computer-related problem, please be sure to include all the necessary information (ie: operating system, model number, hardware, software, etc) that will help others identify your problem for a speedy resolution."

Does this happen to "all" links in a web page?

If so, how did you navigate to and through these forums?

Thanks Mark. I have been using Mozilla for the past month or two and use the usual spy removal stuff with XP as my os. I don't have any problem on this forum, but I subscriobe to several newspapers and I was able to read them with no trouble until probably when I changed browsers, but I'm not sure that has anything to do with it. I get the headers with a "read more" after each header. Problem is the "Read More" is same as the textin the header - not coloured.
Any ideas?

normmacder, For the link color problem open Internet Explorer/Tools/Intenet Options/General tab click the "Colors" button, then make sure that the "Use Windows Colors is checkmarked then click OK.

If you can't open any links try the possible fixes at the link below.;EN-US;Q281679
