    Why on earth can I not access this ONE website???

    and me with IE6 I have had problems occassionally with the odd US site (I'm in Australia) - it was an intermitent problem that fixed itself. I assumed it was a network problem between here and there...but I am guessing.

    Unbelievable! So this is caused by Registry Domain?

    IExplorer freezes after pop-ups

    Mobo Thanks heaps for your help. I rang Dell and they suggested using msconfig to stop all the programs loading in the background at startup. This solved the problem. I've just gone back and re-enabled a couple (internet connection and virus scan) and so far so good. I presume there...

    IExplorer freezes after pop-ups

    IExplorer freezes after pop-ups

    Hi I'd be very grateful for any help with this. My problem is that Internet Explorer freezes up (not responding) after pop-up windows are closed. For example if I am using some on-line banking systems that use pop-ups (after you log-in they open a new window to conduct secure transactions)...
