A bit of a sideways leap, but why don't you try Mozilla Firebird browser instead of IE6, it's freeware, only about a 7Mb download.

It's a very fast browser & you can download "extensions" so that new windows become tabs like in Opera instead of whole new windows, and you can have mouse gestures so that you can flick your mouse to go back or reload a page.

It also stops pop-ups.
