I am using XP/Home SP3. My browser is Firefox version 3.6.13. Email is Incredimail Xe Build ID5864130; SetupID:7; Pn104512264. Antivirus is AVG2011.
I can open links on websites but just over the past 2 weeks I have been unable to open any links in emails and I tend to think it may be something to do with downloading the latest version of AVG or it could be Google Chrome which I downloaded and installed but then uninstalled it after a few days.
I have scanned with Spybot Search and Destroy and also done a complete computer scan with AVG all to no avail. If anyone could point me in the right direction to fix this problem I would be most grateful.
Many thanks.

it's definitely the settings in your browsers and the security settings specifically.

Perhaps, AVG's pop up blocker/security add-on for the browser,that's preventing the page from opening?
