Blank Internet Explorer

  [DELETED] 18:41 09 Apr 2006

Hi, I recently had trouble with my router, and now it is ok, my desktop and two laptops cannot get IE to run or MSN. When IE opens, there is just the title bars and nothing else. There is no error message even. When something is typed into the bar, nothing happens. My ISP AOL still works. Help please.

Are you saying that AOL's own browser works but IE doesn't?

Do you mean MSN Messenger - what happens with that?

VoG ok, sorry for the delay but it took this long to reinstall windows xp and service pack2.I now get 'Page cannot be displayed in the window' of IE. But IE will still not find the msn.

You have MSN as your home page according to your link

On the File menu check that it is not set to Work Offline.

What does it say under Connections?
