Just noticed in past couple days that when I click to activate for things like a free coupon from Arby's (Arby's free Rueben coupon) or to watch a video on Amazon (free videos with Prime membership), nothing happens. This is the first time this has happened and I don't know why. Clicking on links on a webpage works fine, but clicking on those "buttons" as I have mentioned does nothing at all.

You might have a popup blocker or ad blocker that is preventing it.

Some popup blockers will let popups through if you hold down the 'ctrl' key while clicking. Give that a try.
Also, it wouldn't hurt to run a scan with MalwareBytes or SpyBot to make sure nothing's awry.
Aside from that, the only other thing I can think of is to try a different browser.

OK, thanks for those suggestions. I had not thought a popup blocker was a problem, but it could be. I'll run scans with everything too, just in case.

Well this is odd. I ran my anti-virus (Norton), along with malware and trojan software, and that did nothing. So I decided to restore my computer system to about two weeks ago, when this wasn't a problem. Guess what? NOW when I click on an activation type button, or the "Play" button for Amazon Instant video, it works!
The only thing that had changed in the last couple weeks was Microsoft updated a couple times, one of which was a critical update, So the problem seems to be in a Microsoft update? So I can't let any Microsoft updates run now? Weird.

Not necessarily. Something could have been corrupted I'll bet if you do updates you'll be fine

ellory said: Not necessarily. Something could have been corrupted I'll bet if you do updates you'll be fineExcellent point. I'll run the Microsoft updates and see what happens. I think there was a Java update that had run also, so it could be either one of the updates that, if corrupted, gave me the problem. Thank you.
