Hyperlinks to new web browsers


Today, when I double click on a hyperlink to open a new web browser, the new web browser opens, but nothing loads, and the browser remains blank. This problem didn't exist yesterday, I've not installed any new programs either.

Any ideas how I can rectify this problem?



I think Windows Update was to blame again, it doesn't half know how to b***s up my computer. From now on I won't go near it.


Hi oatman,

I had to keep using system restore in order to revert to earlier settings, now things do work properly. I wasn't able to pinpoint the exact cause, but again, the issue arose after installing CXT modem software update and update for Windows XP service pack 1 (KB810243). I would like to be able to keep my system fully up to date, but I have wasted hours being fiddled about by this!

just a tip for the future

download the firefox browser from http://www.mozilla.org/

It is free and is a lot less vulnerable than Internet explorer & a much better browser overall IMO.

The tab feature also comes in handy if you want to have several web pages open at once without cluttering up your task bar.
