    I was on a web site (gwvtravel.com) and clicked on a link. An error message said the plug in would not initialize. I clicked on the plug in icon and an error message said the plug in was located but there was an error with the plug in.
    This has happened before but I pretty much ignored it. I tried to find information on troubleshooting and it was too technical.

    I wanted to upgrade IE so I downloaded version 6 (the cookie thing is kinda neat) thinking it might help my problem. Well I no longer get the plug in error message but I get a blank page. Is there an easy fix for this problem. I have Windows 98 and an old Gateway 333 which suits me fine because I only use the internet (cable connection) and never run any programs. I do have Zone Alarm and Adsubtract which I plan on uninstalling since IE 6 takes care of the cookie issue.

    I did delete the recommended file from the registry but no luck. I also uninstalled Quicktime at least part of it. It did have an uninstall everything button but I was too scared to hit that one.

    And yes the blank page that comes up has an icon but clicking on it brings no results.

    IE 6 has crashed twice since I installed it one hour ago. Not a good sign.

    Is this error happening only on one site or link, or on a variety? Can you give one or more exact links?

    Also, would you obtain and run the StartupList.exe program from the site below, then copy/paste the results to a reply?

    http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/

    And when you get one of those IE errors, can you post the error message you get? If the Reporting Tool is popping up, click the "more info" tab and see what modules are involved.

    Okay the web site of the most resent occurence for the plug in error was gwvtravel.com. At the top of the web page go to best buys.On the next page(winter deals) if I click on a link the page comes up blank. This has happened other times on other web pages but I do not recall what they were.

    No IE error to report yet but I just got online.

    Here's the report you requested.

    Have you tried disabling

    C:\PROGRAM FILES\ADSUBTRACT\ADSUB.EXE

    The program may be blocking a domain which supplies both ads and the content you are trying to view.

    Also you might want to review what this link says about those Cybermedia (helpspot) entries:

    http://www.answersthatwork.com/Tasklist_pages/tasklist_f.htm

    Probably not related to your problem at all, but it might be best to run msconfig and click on the Startup Tab and remove the startup checks for them

    ZoneAlarm may also need to be temporarily turned off for troubleshooting, it has been known to block some domains when they try to connect to special ports.

    The web page link I was trying to view was a pdf. file. So I uninstalled my Adobe 5 and reinstalled it. It seems a little slow though. Could something be interferring with Adobe 5?

    Sometimes the online viewing of pdf files can be excruciatingly slow. It depends alot on the site itself and the server resources.

    If it's something you are going to view more than once, downloading is the best option, right off the bat. I usually just right click and "save target as"

    As for something interferring, I don't know if McAfee's Webscan would do it, but you could disable it for a test.
