    Hi All,

    Since a few weeks i'm having a serious problem in using Internet Explorer: when browsing and a link refers to a new window, the new window appears blank. When i click "Stop" and "Refresh", the content of that pop-up window does appear, so somehow the link is there.

    This problem seems to have consequences for various handlings: i can't add attachments in Yahoo-mail and i cannot use the address-book (functions are still available in Netscape).

    Another problem is that the "Find on this page" function (Ctrl+F) doesn't work anymore - an error message appears ("An error has occurred in this dialog. Error: 35 - Incompatible version of the RPC stub").

    These problems first occured in IE5, i tried the repair-function and i installed IE6 - nothing seems to help.

    I really hope that you can help me out here, i look forward to your reaction!

    Thanx in advance,
