Hi! I was trying to use the online help from IIS 5.1 in XP Pro (I don't really know what i'm doing, just having a play around). it opens in internet explorer and there should be a list of helps topics on the left - but they're not shown. all that's shown there is a box - as if a picture hadn't loaded. i think this is an activeX control but i can't figure out how to get it to show. i'm fairly sure it's not my security settings in IE; and there's no error message shown.
As the MSBLAST virus has been using DCOM to invade loads of puters,M$ might have "patched" your IE,I use Dcombobulator from grc to gain control of this part of XP(having been hit by this virus within seconds of connecting to Updates site whilst trying to d/l the patch)Try having a looksee thru "Services" and see if its disabled,needs manual start,etc
