Hello,

I'm not sure what's happening here - when clicking on a link on our school website that should take me to compare4kids.co.uk, I end up at 123-reg.co.uk. If I type Compare 4 Kids in google, and click on the link, the same things happens. I have checked with other users and the links work fine for them. Can anyone advise me on what to do please?

I am using Windows Vista and Internet Explorer 9.

Many thanks,

Wendy

Try resetting the hosts file: http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9668866
This tool frown Microsoft should do it automatically.

What if there were no hypothetical situations?

Good grief! It worked! Thank you ex0syphen. Was it something that I'd done wrong initially??

Unless you were messing with system files, it wasn't your fault. I recommend running a full virus scan, because that may have caused it.

I'm glad I could help, if the scan finds anything be sure to mention it.
