I installed XP Service Pack 3 this morning. The installation went well with no problems.
Later I needed to do a Google Search and that's when I noticed the problem.
I tried to click on the link for the search results and it did not work.
I had to right click and use the "Open in New Tab" or "Open in New Window".
Can someone help?
Believe it or not, I had this happen two years ago and even reloaded the OS, same thing.
It was my router. I replaced it and all worked fine. I found this after it still would not work, I connected directly to the DSL modem and viola...all worked well. Even a router hard reset with no config did the same thing.
Try this: open a Command Prompt window and type the command:
and check that you get an affirmative response. Then try again.
