I am having trouble clicking on links within email or websites and nothing happens. I have a desktop with XP and whenever I clicked it would ask if I wanted to accept the pop-up but with Windows 7 nothing. For example to register they sent an email with a link to finish the registration. I click and nothing so I copied the link and put into the browser and it works. What do I need to do to accept some of these pop-ups? I am not a really good technical person I just know enough to be dangerous.

As a work-around, until you get the problem sorted out, you can right-click on the link and select: Open. Not perfect, but it's a little easier than copying the link and pasting it into the address bar.

Well I have tried all the suggestions and nothing worked. Could the problem be in the virus protection program I have? I have Webroot right now and it came with the laptop so I have never used this before. Could this be the problem and not Windows 7? Thanks for all your suggestions and help. I may have to take this back to Best Buy to have the Geek Squad take care of the problem.
Have you tried the default programs dance: Got to "Default Programs", use the last option "...computer defaults", "custom". Now check off you choices for mail and browser (NOT "use my current..."). That may fix it for a while.
