Very recently (after the last batch of microsoft updates?) when I go to click a hyperlink in IE no matter what search engine the link doesn't open and then I get shunted back to the previous page. In Firefox all the links work fine. So, normaly I would just use firefox, but several of my co-workers are having the same issue and refuse to make the switch (don't ask me why).

All of us with the particular problem are running XP Pro With all the current Microsoft updates(SP3 and all Security updates, etc.)

Any Ideas?

Not sure if this helps - It was noted by another user of XP -
Windows XP users are advised to run a Microsoft FixIt (for those not adept at manual registry editing), to avoid a vulnerability in Help and Support. Please note, an update will be available via Windows Update in the future, but in the meantime, download and run the FixIt from Microsoft;


For those of you wanting details on the vulnerability, please see;


Thank You -
