I'm a newbie, and need help. I can't click on links any links. Even on this site if I try to click on a link to any other site I can't. I don't even get a window that gives me the opportunity to open the link. I also can't click on drop down boxes or print from anywhere other than my word, it's driving me crazy.

Try downloading Java from the link below. After it installs, go to Add/Remove and remove all earlier Java programs.

If that doesn't solve your problem, it may be your security options are set too high. That is assuming that you are using IE browser.
It could also be a security program on your computer is blocking script. Norton and ZA antivirus have been known for that. That you would have to troubleshoot by shutting down one program at a time from loading at startup or finding the setting that is blocking script.

A few questions-- Windows XP2?--IE7?

How long have you had this problem? Did you install a program or update immediately before the problem started?
List the security programs by whether they are free or commercial apps.

What Addons do you have in IE?

Have you scanned for malware? With what programs?

I made several changes around the same time, so not sure exactly what caused problem. I did a xp2 update, changed from norton anti virus to avg 7.5, added ad-aware and spybot.

I'm not sure if this would matter or not, but when you uninstalled the Norton AV, did you run the SymNRT removal tool?
Have a look at How to Remove Your Norton Products and download the removal tool from there.
