Windows 7: I have trouble clicking on certain random links. They just won't open.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64
I have trouble clicking on certain random links. They just won't open.

I've been having problems with clicking on links to go to other sites. It's very random. Some links work, but many others don't. It really limits my ability to get information, watch videos, etc. I'm not computer literate. At least not much. But this is very frustrating. I haven't been able to find a good answer. Can someone help please? Thank you.

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Please reset IE using this info:
Internet Explorer - Reset
When you get to step 5, please put a check by the option to Delete Personal Settings.
Doing this should reset IE's popup blocker - which might be the source of your problems,

When you say:
Some links work, but many others don't.
What do you see when links don't work?

What version of IE are you using?
Please see this post if you need help.

See what this does, although it's most likely AVG toolbar which is hampering your ability,
Use No Add-ons mode/ Click the Start button and type in the search box,
Internet explorer

Click on the suggestion (No Add-ons) or itís located at,
Start/ All programs/ Accessories folder/ System tools folder/ No add-ons.

Where did ie 64 bit version go,
