Question Downloading links

I have been unable to download any links given in any post on the forum. I have some work done to clean up some garbage- registry errors and a security hole, as they were described in the troubleshooting guide. However, I found tonight that I can't download any of Harry's links or other links as well. Any help, suggestions, hints are most welcome.
FWIW, I wonder how Harry finds time to get these links he puts on his posts.

John, for those who know more than I do, what Browser, search engine, and antivirus are you using?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

John, I don't search out any of the links that I post, I rely on my many international friends who regularly email me with them, some are unsuitable to post, others I've already had yet others are a waste of space, I only post what I believe are worthy of being posted here on the forum!
By the way John I mentioned VLC in another thread, I forgot to mention that it is a freebie! Here is a link, if this doesn't open then I reckon that you need a technician.

Didn't work. I'll check with a kid at church who is a computer whiz. He helps maintain the AV system and computers throughout the building.

Can you provide me some links you are trying to download or the page of the links, so that I can do some testing?

A link to a thread or a post will suffice. I need to check to see if there is an issue with permissions or perhaps the item was removed from the hosting site it was posted on.

Thanks,

Doesn't really matter what link I click on. I tried Harry's suggestion and it didn't work. Right clicking "Open in New Tab" didn't work either. If I click on a link, I get the URL info (link info) at the top of the screen but the page is blank. Never had this problem with any other computer before- Dell Inspiron 15, 5000 Series, FYI.
Many thanks for your concern. Didn't get a chance to see the young guy at church yesterday.

Could be your browser is blocking them, or your anti virus. Can you try a different browser, such as chrome and see if that makes a difference?

For the sake of testing, try downloading the pdf in this post: http://www.routerforums.com/harbor-f...440-lathe.html
