OK I will put it  as simple as I can.... Go to the web address that I give you here.
http://www.vuelolibreguatemala.org/evento/welcome2.php

Scroll down the page until you find a pop up link that says (CLICK TO SEE MAP) click on it and you will see the map....... right!!

Well, I can't see it!! And its the same thing on any link of any web site.. What I see when I click where it says (CLICK TO SEE MAP) is only the empty frame with the size of the map that's it!! Empty and the sand box clock stays there for ever until I close it.

However I notice that the correct address of the link that belongs to the map appeared in the address box on top of the page; I am talking of the address box the one next to Go....

So then I copied the address, closed the open empty frame, pasted again the address of the map on the address window, clicked on Go,,, Not on the (CLICK TO SEE MAP) but instead on GO and sure did open OK... Meaning that there is no communication's from the (CLICK TO SEE MAP "LINK") from my computer into the map address, but if I bypass it, the link sure is there.... OF COURSE IS THERE BECOUSE YOU HAVE SEING IT!!

HOW CAN I FIX THIS PROBLEM!!
Can this may be a Bug that is interfering in between this communication channel.? My system is an XP Home Edition, I have Norton up to date Antivirus edition & scan regularly Spyware blast to prevent any other from coming in and run Spybot each time I open my system to fix and clean any possible Spyware threats however I have notice that some Spyware threats keep coming back and don't go away no matter how many times I fix them...... Can this be the possible problem? Or what else....... let me know!! Need help Urgent!! Need to built a web site and can't until problem resolved...... thank you in advance for your prompt response...

HP 2400+Athlon XPprocessor(2.0GHZ) 512MB(2x256mb) 80gb+Ultra DMA hard drive 64MB DDR SD RAM Nvidia Geforce 4MXgraphics with 64mb

I think you have a pop-up blocker that is blocking the pop-up window. some examples of pop-up blocker are google-bar, yahoo-bar etc. Or your firewall could be blocking pop-ups too.

enable pop-ups and u should be able to see it fine.

yeah. ive tried it and it worked.
if you have Service Pack 2 installed, it already installed the pop-up blocker automatically under explorer 6.0.
and trust me it blocks everything.... it's very annoying.
so turn it off.

and there is nothing you can do to prevent that to happen.
unless you write *turn off pop-up blocker if you want to see the picture*

Also, check your security settings.

In IE, Go to Tools > Internet Options > Security, and change the security level for the internet zone to medium.

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

Go to download.com and download a spy ware remover and an adware remover, remove any pop up stoppers you have as some of these actually generate pop ups.

If none of this works i would (while keeping your spyware protectors active) try and run an IE installation again, it will probably mend any corrupted files - Before you re-install, completely uninstal.

Just a suggesiton but its worth a go

You mentioned that you have a Norton product.... norton has its own ad blocking software that blocks content based on its filename, path, or dimensions...  It acts as a proxy server and removes the content from the html before it reaches the browser.

Heres some instructions for enabling/disabling this "feature".  They're kinda old (2003) but I imagine that the 2004 and 2005 products are similar.

Shatow,

No, it is not. In order to close a question you need either to accept one or more answer or to request deletinbg in case noone had helped.

Had the above comments helped you?
