Hi Carey, I am running Windows XP Pro and am having trouble connecting to web pages from a HTTP:// sent to me in an email or on messenger. When I click on these all I get is a blank white page.

If I do a search and click on the same address I can go to the page with no problem. The person sending these links can click on them and go to the page with no problem so I suspect it is something in my system preventing me from connecting to the site. Is there any information you can give me on this or is there a repair wizard I can run to look for what may be causing this problem and fix it? Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi,

There can be several reasons for this. My advice is to use the mouse highlight the web address and press CTRL-C. Then open Internet Explorer and in the address window, highlight whatever is already there and press CTRL-V.

Depending on what e-mail program you are using, what version and other variables, will affect this problem This is the only solution I can offer based on the information you offered.
