Windows 7: Computer won't transfer to a secondary file??

Computer won't transfer to a secondary file??

I'm new to Windows 7 and am getting frustrated that I can't transfer to another site recommended on a page. ie: I'm on Nextag and it lists Newegg as a site that has my product but when I click on Newegg it won't open that page. Another example just happened when I was on a page that listed some forms available for download or print however my computer won't bring up those pages.
Am I missing a program like Adobe 5.5 or is this something to do with my set up?
I am using an HP 6200 Pro with Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.
I have installed Foxit Reader 5 and Adobe Reader X.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

To go to another website through a link from the website open on your browser, you do not need Acrobat or Acrobat Reader. These programs are required only to open PDF files either on local drive or on a website.

In your example you are in Nextag web site and you tried to go to Newegg website by clicking on the Newegg name. Is the Newegg name on the website given as a link or not. Usually a link is indicated with a different color for text and when you keep the mouse on this link, the mouse cursor changes to a hand and in the web browser's status bar the target website's address is given. If it is a link with Newegg website as target you will be transferred to that site, when clicked on the link. If it is just text then by clicking on it, nothing happens.

About the forms on the webpage also you could not download the forms.

Could be your mouse not working properly? I mean the left button to select and to open a link not working properly. Try the Right button for the Left button function and see. If it is working then your buttons functions have been reversed. You can fix this by going to the mouse applet in Control Panel.

Please check your mouse. It it still does not work, give us more details.

My mouse is fine. I also have a wireless mouse and the same thing happens. You are right I try to click on a link (different color and hand visible) but that page won't open. In the case of the PDF form, again the link won't open even though the site is shown at the bottom of the page. I had to type that in the browser in order to get the page I needed. It seems that when clicking on a hightlighted reference that is within the site the transfer is made but when it has to go to another site or to another format then it won't transfer.

You can try resetting the browser's settings to default values. If you are using Internet Explorer, Click on Tools menu and the Internet Options sub menu. Go to Advanced tab and and click on the Reset button on the bottom of the dialog box. This should reset the IE's settings.

I tried resetting Internet Explorer 9 but it kept coming up with a notice to close all windows etc. and none were open so I gave up. Installed Firefox and everything works just fine. There must be a specific setting that has to be enabled in Internet, but which one?

If you are comfortable in using Firefox and everything is working properly, then you can continue using that browser. Lots of people does not use MS Internet Explorer.

There are many other good browsers like, Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera etc. available for free.

I myself use Maxthon. You may ignore IE.
