    Internet Explorer 6.0.2800 (sp1) - Win2000 sp4 - fails to get the focus (mark/select) on any part of a displayed page. This means NOT being able to enter text like e.g. user/passw etc...

    IExplorer works OK under Admin privileges, but NOT under any User, e.g. advanced. Even tried: While Admin session works OK, copied Admin user profile to Default User... then created new Test-user profile... but this (or any) not having Admin right, fails IE to focus on page. Any page, even a locally generated simple test HTM with Word. NOT able to select ANY desplayed text...
    Giving the same user Admin privileges, enables a normal IExplorer behavour !
    This also happens under "Fail Safe" mode...

    Other hint:
    Help/about normally displays, e.g.: (I am translating frm my spanish v.)
    Admin Session...

    NOTE: data is blank !! also, -same symtom- [Accept] button NOT able
