I'm on PricingCentral.com, a price search engine website that lists other search engine websites. When I try to go to some of the other sites, I get a 'The page cannot be found' & 'HTTP 400 - Bad Request - Internet Explorer' result. This only happens on about half of the 20 other search engine website links.

When I hover my mouse pointer over any of the links their web address shows in the status bar. Opening a link that doesn't work shows something like http://www.pricingcentral.com/go.htm?t=m&i=156 instead of http://www.overstock.com in the address bar. If I manually type in the correct address in the address bar the page will load correctly.

This problem started after having shut-down and computer lock-up problems, sometimes requiring me to push the re-set button on my ancient PII Dell Dimension V350 (Oct 1998) with IE ver. 6.0.2800.1106 update ver. SP1;Q905915;q313829;Q912812;Q918439;Q916281 and 128 bit cipher strength.

When this has happened before re-booting usually solved the problem, but not this time. I re-booted twice with the same result both times.

Suggestions welcome,

(Moderator edit: post moved to more appropriate forum. jgw)
