Windows 7: Secondary links don't work

16 Apr 2015   #1

Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit SP1
Secondary links don't work

The following problem happens in Google, Google Chrome, Yahoo and Firefox. Everyone I have tried! If I do a search, get a page of hits. I click on a link, It opens up just fine! So good so far! But if I try to open a link on that page, it don't work, I get a blank.To access the secondary link, I have to right click, "copy shortcut" then "paste" it into the address bar. Then it opens right up like it should. I don't get many problems but when I do, it's a whooper!

Mate just try running these for starters < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2
Have you tried IE11 as well as I am not a great lover of other browsers I always use IE it seems to me that the claims that the others are faster is a bit of a misnomer to be honest.
