any ideas? running windows 2000
Are you fully patched and up to date, with all service packs and Windows Updates...?
Is your security up to date? (Anti-Virus, Firewall, Anti-Spyware)
Have you tried a repair, of either IE, or Win2k?
Some Security software for you to look at, if you are not up to date, or unsure as to what to use...
Spybot - Search & Destroy and perhaps Ad-Aware 2007 Or even SUPER AntiSpyware to check for nasties?
The last one, SAS, is a realtime program, meaning it will run at startup and keep you protected constantly. I don't know what protection you run though, so you might have adequate protection already... My preferred choice is, Webroot's SpySweeper
Also, some online Anti Virus Scanners, should you wish to try them....
Just a few options for you, but a Repair of IE might be a good place to start, assuming you are not being let down by the Anti-Malware side of things...
you can navigate to C > program files > internet explorer and double click on ie6setup and follow the prompts,
in the warning check box, select the second option and continue,
this will re-install ie6 and a re-boot will be needed to complete the operation,
hope this helps
It's good to see you both. Your suggestion hawklord may well work and fix IE for now, but if there is an underlying issue, all it will do is mask it.
Daz's suggestions are good ones. It is also worthwhile having a read of the stickies at the top of this forum, especially This one
they will send you a long way down the road to resolving your problem once and for all.
I'm an old W2K user, but haven't had it loaded on a machine for several years now. XP didn't get loaded until SP2, and I have found it a slightly "better mousetrap".
