My Win98 Explorer laft pane suddenly went blank. Mosaic and Rollin' Rog repaired it with the following fix:
Go to http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?postid=279651#post279651 and d'load the file exp.txt by right clicking on the link and choosing "Save As...". Rename it as a .reg file, choose where to save it and click "Save". when d'load is complete, close the dialog box. Easiest way to merge it into your registry is to go Start/Find/files or folders, type "exp.reg" in the find box and click Find Now. When it comes up, RIGHT click on the icon and select "merge". Click OK to everything, and you're done.

PS - VERY IMPORTANT!! This will ONLY work with Win98 and IE5. Do Not attempt this fix with any other version of IE.

pps - and ignore the typo's in my first post.

Actually it should work with IE6 as long as the Windows version is 9x or ME. Otherwise, some file paths need to be changed.

I had the exact same thing about 3 months ago and someone suggested running repair on IE. That fixed it for me.
