It turned out to be spyware of some sort. I ran a spyware detection program and deleted all that they suggested and hey presto! success

Cheers for all your suggestions. Good to know there is help out there when needed.

Here is the last but one thread - I think it gives an idea of the problems. I also thought it might be Java - but after following solutions decided it must be Explorer.

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?

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
