explorer problems

I am having an intermittent problem with internet explorer 6

When I try to open links within a web page all I get is a blank explorer window,with no address, in the address bar. Nothing then happens, the page is not loaded, or updated at all.

Any ideas, or help !

Maybe a problem with the page or your system.

Is it a specific web page that this problem occurs on?

sent me an email. Here it is:

"no specific web page, happens on a few different sites, It seems very odd."

BTW please just post replies here rather than email people! Then others can get their minds working on it as well! :D

the problem seems to be on most pages when I am online, could it be down to some compatabilty problems between AOL, and I.E. 6.0 ?

AOL has been doing the same my end, as reported by others for the last week or so.

Normaly opening up IE would give no problems but Aol install can set your prefernces which may be your problem.There would be nothing lost by uninstalling AOL and then reinstalling incase you may have a slight corruption with there software.

Depending on your OS you could try a repair to IE Eplorer first.

Any help with how to proceed with a repair. Accessed the programme but there seems to be no rpepair facility. I have XP pro as my O.S.

before you attempt that or do any repair, as it's WinXP. Do you have a firewall running and with poss to high a secutity setting.(do not mean Winxp firewall)

You could also go to internet option,(via the tools in IE)click on the programs tab and select reset web settings.

See if that improves your IE browser.(Take a note of the list in that window,incase you have to set back to as they were.
