Hi all...running XP home P4 machine, and as of late whenever i click on a link to take me to another page (opens in different window) nothing happens, well i say nothing, what happens is, a blank window appears, the egg timer does it stuff, but never actually loads the came to my attention when doing internet banking...i contacted my bank and they say that their server is fine...i am using BT broadband....any suggestions would be really useful!!

Thanks for the help guys but it has not rectified the problem...on the MS page you sent me it was stated that this will resolve "if i am choosing to open in another window", maybe i was unclear (alot more like)..i am just hitting the link and it opens a window for me, there is no choice involved...anyhoo...i tried the regdit approach...and copied and pasted a few of the .dll's....but to no avail...has anyone got any other ideas?
