My computer has recently developed the above fault.

No matter what website I am on, if I click on any kind of link my connection freezes. I have to quit and take the End Now when it tells me the program is not responding.

I am on windows XP and it has only started happening in the last fortnight.

Anyone got any ideas as to what is wrong and how I can fix it?

Any advice gratefully received.

Remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. by using Ccleaner. Do not use "Advanced Settings" or the "Issues" button. Use only the default settings. http://www.ccleaner.com/

Install the latest Java. Open control panel and click on "coffee cup" java icon. Select the update tab and click on update.
Then go to Add/Remove program and remove ALL old Java programs.
Post back with results, please.
