Intermittent Blank Page in IE6

  Zak 17:48 24 Apr 2005

My friend is running Win XP SP2 & using IE 6.

When browsing he ends up with a blank page and bottom left hand corner of browser shows "Done".

This also happens with pop up windows.

We have confirmed following:

1. Adaware scan shows clean.

2. AVG scan shows clean

3. Confirmed that Home Page has not been hijacked

4. He is not running a Hosts file

On closing the browser and re-trying the required site is accessed.

My friend wonders whether this could be a virus or trojan.

This problem is intermittent and not site specific.

Any ideas please?
