Occasionally I have web pages where a button will appear to do nothing.  This seems to happen when the button links to another site and is repeatable in Chrome, FF, and IE on my main W7 desktop, and also on my W98 laptop, both of which run Avast AV.


Sites seem fine for other people.


Could Avast or some other protection sw be disabling these buttons?

Hello and sorry that your question was missed.


Quite often you will have AdBlock or other blocking devices set on F/fox or Chrome.

This is a safety measure to prevent you from visiting certain sites.

Your Antivirus settings may also block some content for obvious reasons.


I personally use WOT as a guide to programs and sites, and it will throw a large Warning sign over certain pages.


Check your security settings and you may just have them a little bit high for certain areas.

Also Parental Guides can block some of the unwanted pages.if turned on.


Next Reset your Hosts File here http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9668866 <=

Click on the link, click Run and follow the basic directions.

This is the basic Microsoft version of blocking basic "bad sites".


If there are certain sites, please ask and we will check them  for you.
