Yeah, it is probably something with an antivirus, because it does it on
other browsers like firefox too.  Windows is just making things so
difficult, I wish I could stop using it.  Unfortunately Ubuntu doesn't
work right on my laptop so I am kind of stuck with it.  (Ubuntu won't
look unless I hold down the space bar (very weird) and it isn't
compatible with my wireless card)  I have tried Windows 7 and it seems
to organize networks much better, so it is looking promising but I am
still not getting too excited because it is Microsoft.  Also, I already
tried that link you gave me and it works, that fixed over half of my
problems, thank you very much!

That is probably a link checker, like McAfee Site Advisor, or similar. 
It is trying to check the link before allowing you to try and load it. 
I am seeing it a lot!  It might be Windows Defender, or the new link 
scan in IE8.  And it needs to be figured out...
