    I recently installed a cable modem using Time-Warners Road-Runner Service. Previously I was using AOL. The connection and service runs great, HOWEVER, when I click on a link that opens a “pop-up” window, nothing appears in the window. I’ve never had this problem before. I believe that the problem is in my Internet Explorer. I am using Internet Explorer 5 and Windows 98se. I could be wrong about the source of theproblem, but through many hours of frustration I have come up with this article from Microsoft link at…


    If I try to copy any shortcut from a link, I get this in the address bar…”javascript:void(0)”

    Additionally, if I try to download any newer versions of Internet Explorer, my computer brings up an error message that says, “this program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down” when I click o.k. it closes my explorer. Even when I just get to the Microsoft download page, before I even get the chance to download, the message appears. I thought that downloading a newer version of Explorer might solve my problem, but I can’t. My PC is posessed!

    All I want to do is view my pop-up windows… even with the Microsoft link of the explanation of the problem, I don’t know how to correct it, I am not a very computer savvy guy!

    … PLEASE HELP!!!!!!
