    Hi,

    I undertook a reformat and re-install of my XP Home SP2.
    Full reformat and re-partition etc etc so everything scrubbed back to original after Worm Blaster Trojan. (Windows firewall is on as advised).

    All set up re-installed, got XP SP3 downloaded from MSoft etc, include IE8.

    Problem : I can get on internet, but when I attempt to log into McAfee, for example, no luck, as if the form detail won't transmit? Same on E-mail login ?

    Login easy on my laptop so I know Accounts are working?

    I did notice IE8 was giving me a bit of jip on compatability with add-ons > drive letter something or another ..

    Not sure if I revert back to IE6 - how do i do that?

    Any help appreciated, Simon.

    If you uninstall the IE that you have now, it will revert to the previous version.

    But it is not advisable. Web standards have changed and IE6 is far less secure that later versions. You may find some web pages lack support in IE6. But it's up to you, of course. You could try it and see if it helps.

    OK, I'll stick with IE8.

    Any ideas on settings I may have on that is stopping my form data from sending?

    I have set all defaults on Firewall and IE but still no good - weird ?
