OK Guys, so I've got IE 6 with service pack 1 and Java with all the updates known to man and they're not talking to one another most of the time. Occassionly they might and I can get my work e-mails and other affected sites but most times I can't. I've been on to the Java site and trawled through their help pages but no joy. I've tried to un-install IE but although there is a sub folder within the IE folder marked Uninstall it doesn't do what it says on the box! I have got hold of another IE 6 to install but when I try I get a message about having a more recent version and it won't install. Short of a complete re format and installation (which I'd rather not do because of space restrictions in doing backups) is there anything else to suggest?
But if there is no change to your problem, make sure you reactivate it.
On the other hand, if it clears the problem, then it is a question of finding out specifically, which part of the firewall processes are causing the problem. It could be, that ports required to pass data, have inadvertently been closed.
