Try the following:

Close all open programs.

Click Start>Run the copy & paste or type in:

regsvr32 urlmon.dll

Click OK.

Restart the computer.

Note that the spacing is important.

It will re-register the urlmon.dll file and may correct the problem.

i was playing around with this netbook for a while, its very strange, i can go to some sites, some links work, but others do not, i cant click a link to go to avg antivirus, or epson to get printer driver. I dont get an error message either, just sits there.
This is a new netbook so cant be a virus, any other ideas. I cant go to firefox either,and i did try the urlmon.dll thing, still no go.
