Win XP home, IE6/Firefox:
On some sites, when I clik on a link it either goes to Google (most often), or another unconnected site.
How do I fix this ?

This could be a number of reasons :

1) Administrator or IT department has limited access to certain sites. ( This can also be parental control )
2) Do you have the MVPS host file?
3) Do you have McAfee Siteadvisor on your computer?
4)What about fireall and antivirus programmes do you have?
