I am currently using ie5, can somebody tell me how to stop unwanted links from loading when I try to visit a site (sometimes as many as 6 different ones) ?

I guess you mean pop-ups. If so, go to dowload.com and look for "AdsOff" or "KillAd". They are great programs to get rid of those unwanted pop-up windows.

Thank you for trying, but I am still experiencing the same problem even after installing 'Kill Ad'. Whenever I go to an MP3 site it automatically starts to load about 3 or 4 other MP3 sites (which is a real pain)

There is no real guaranteed way to turn those off. It is a fact of life when going to those types of sites. What you can play around with is turning off the scripting options in IE. Scripting languages such as Java Script and VB script are usually what make these windows popup. Go to Tools, Internet Options, Security Tab and click on Custom Level button. Scroll down to the scripting section. You will need to play around with these options to find a combination that works for you. The only drawback to this method is going to sites that use scripting for useful purposes. You have to ask yourself if you want to sacrifice useful pages working correctly to get away from the hassle of popup windows. Hope this helps.

There's a great wee program called "Buzoff" (buzoff.exe, or maybe buzof.exe) which will automatically close the popups at sites you visit regularly. I had it at one time, (and a crack, for educational purposes!), but can't remember where it is. You'll have to do a search!

Ok, did search, it's from Basta Computing ... www.basta.com. You can also d/load it from tucows.com, davecentral.com, winfile.com and others.
Good luck!

PS: go to:

for crack (v.1.44), or search altavista using this format:
      buzof +crack
