  1. When I click on links (I.E game sites such as "newgrounds" and most others) the pages do nothing, they don't load but none of the usual "page can not be displayed" messages come up..I have searched for an answer but I can't seem to find one...I recently installed XP Pro with SP 2 but none of the troubleshooting sites I have found describe this problem..links from search engines work but other than that they don't work...please help! :hotbounce

    Check your HOSTS file in windows\system32\drivers\etc

    Normally there are only a few entries. If you replace (or some program or you alter) that file, any website in there runs into the sand of which is "localhost" which does exactly...... nothing.
    You can edit it with Notepad.
