    I can no longer click on the links sent to me on Outlook Express MSN or
    yahoo messenger. I think it must have something to do with Microsoft beta
    virus and spyware program, but can not see where I can change all the

    I cant do CTRL and click or Alt n click either or shift and click.

    I use XP Pro S2, and recently updated to newer version of Microsoft Beta
    prog. I use Firefox as default and also IE. I have to cut and paste links.

    Please help me to set this correct.

    Click Tools, Internet Options or Start, Settings, Control Panel, Internet Options, under Tempory
    Internet Files, click "Delete Files", check "delete all offline content", click "OK", "OK",
    Now try it again. If it still fails to work, then look here:

    One reported cure is to click Start, Run. In the run box, type "regsvr32 urlmon.dll" without the
    quotes and press Enter. Then open Internet Explorer and go to Tools, Internet Options,
    "Programs" tab, and click on "Reset Web Settings...", click "Apply", "OK"
