    Not sure why it happened but when I click on certain links, nothing happens.

    If I try to click on the link within a rep post, it doesn't work. If I try to click on a you tube video posted here, it says I have opted to turn embedded links off or something.

    Help?

    You've been put on double secret probation.

    :lol:
    Is it only in this Forum that it happens or does it occur in emails? If it is occurs in other areas not related to this Forum it may be your browser or more serious issues.

    The embedding comment is because the YouTube video has turned of embedding, not you. I need more information on exactly what is happening to help with the rest.

    Has your system had any automatic updates recently? Settings could have been changed.
    Also what browser are you using? It could be an issue with your browser. If you're having issues with links then it's probably your browser, firewall or anti-virus settings that have changed and is blocking your ability to use the links. Not sure where to look to fix it, maybe someone with a little more experience in that area can help.

    I have had automatic updates recently. Internet Explorer 9. I've been trying this morning but I can't make heads or tails of it. Also, in my start menu, I can't find where you have run, search, etc.. I never use it on this computer so I don't know if I ever had it.

    Which version of Windows are you using? Oh and since I now know it's explorer 9 I'm pretty sure that's your culprit.
