Windows 8 update Laptop = Internet Explorer Problems

This morning I installed all of the new updates that came out on Windows 8 yesterday and all of a sudden I can't go to Domain Names | The World's Largest Domain Name Registrar - GoDaddy. It has worked fine but now that I have installed the updates it does not work. Can anyone else confirm that they are having this problem?


What I see is this isn't so much about godaddy.com, as it is about http://go.redirectingat.com. The link embedded in the text to godaddy must first pass through a redirect which counts the hits and somebody gets paid for page hits.

The byline is this:

If you’ve landed on this page and didn’t mean to, unfortunately you’ve most likely clicked on a broken link along the way. Links can be broken if they are badly formatted; if you spot any again, we’d advise reporting these to the site owner.

I installed the updates too and IE goes exactly where you expected the link to go.
