    Hiya

    First off, have you emptied your Tempory Internet Files lately? Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, DON'T delete offline content.

    I was going to suggest a repair, but I'm unsure if IE6 has it. Just in case, go to Control Panel | AddRemove. Doubleclick Microsoft Internet Explorer. Choose Repair and apply.

    Ed, just thought you should know, If IE6 was preinstalled then there is no repair but there is a Critical restore ( i believe its called) and to my understanding its only to be used in an EMERGENCY! What he might want to do is go to >>http://search.support.microsoft.com/search/default.aspx and there should be a solution at this site. TOM

    Hiya Tom

    Are you talking about this:

    Go back to a previous version of IE. Go to the AddRemove part again, but this time put a tick in "restore to previous windows configuration", then a tick in Add A companent, instead of Repair. Follow the prompts and select Internet Explorer. Ignore the warning and reinstall it anyway. Now, run the repair.

    As I say, not up on IE6, as I still consider it buggy.
