I had tried Google Chrome Web browser. Found it confusing and very "Fisher-Price" format and several utilities did not function(eg: favorites). I removed Chrome and reverted to IE 7.
Now I've found that when I recieve emails with embedded links to web sites, I can not 'click' the link and activate the link.
(eg: UPS tracking info, etc). Prior to loading the Google app. these link worked as expected.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hold down the ctrl key while clicking on the link, if it opens you have an over-active pop up blocker.

Are you using an email client or web-based mail to access your mail? If an email client, which one?

Thanks Queen-Evie,
I tried the 'ctrl key"; did not work. I use AVGfree as my security but I have the "link Scanner" function turned off. Other than trying the Google Chrome" software no other changes have been made prior to or after trying 'Chrome". One thing I noticed when Google Chrome loaded it said that it would import all favorites, etc. but I found that it did not do so. Another thing is that some of my web access desktop shortcuts no longer work including Google search. ANy other I deas will by appreciated.

I still need to know if you are using an email client (Outlook Express, Outlook, Thunderbird, Windows Mail, etc) and which one.
