Well it would help to know what is happening.

If you are being diverted to different Web Sites you most likely have some form of Spy Ware infection so run Spy Bot S & D and Ad aware Lava soft over your computer to remove the infections. they are available for free download from

You can also try the Beta Version of MS's Anti Spyware tool available at

Just a word of warning here though the MS product Auto Update Service will come up as Spy Ware or Mal Ware on the other Spyware scanners.

I am assuming that you are using Internet Explorer as your default browser, and when you click on a link in OE, nothing happens. If this is not the case, ignore the rest of this, and as Col says, give us more info. If I am right, open Internet Explorer, click on Tools, Internet Options, the Programs tab, and click on Reset Web Settings.

This re-sets a number of defaults in IE to the "as installed" settings, and will often solve the problems that you have.
