Email messages and downloaded web pages with links to information that are located elsewhere (that is ... not within the same email or web page) result in a new BLANK windows web page ... with the hourglass icon indicating that it is trying to download the information I am seeking ... but it is being blocked somehow from appearing.
I had been uploading programs into the computer before this occured. Unfortunately, the problem was not noticed right away and I have lost tract of the programs that were uploaded (assuming some kind of conflict is creating the problem in the first place?)
Your help woud be appreciated!

What operating system are you using? What browser?

If its XP did you download SP 2 recently?

It may be that your security settings are too high and stopping all Active X components, the security settings may be in the "high" zone rather than "medium", or you may have downloaded a hijacker.

Does your home page go to "about:blank" or is it trying to access the right address and just being prevented from connecting?
