Q

Can't navigate within a Web site using IE

I'm using Win XP Home SP2. I can't navigate within a Web site using IE. The home page opens, but if I click within the site nothing happens. This does not happen if I change browsers (like with Mozilla for example). However I am used to IE and would prefer to use it.
Odds are something within IE has gotten damaged. One way to insure that IE and all of its components are installed correctly is to go to the IE website (using Mozilla, perhaps) and download a fresh installation of IE. This should force a re-initialization of all the components that IE depends on, some of which might have become unregistered. You may also want to try cleaning IE's object cache using a tool like CCleaner (www.ccleaner.com), in the event a damaged object in the cache is preventing browsing.
