    Default IE6 - Open in a new Window

    Arrghhhhh,

    Win98
    Ie6 Sp1

    The boss's computer will not allow me to open in a new window. The new window opens, but it just sits there and does nothing.

    I have followed the advise at microsoft link , but it has not resolved the problem.

    I have re-installed ie6, but still not luck.

    Has anyone got any ideas as to how to go about possibly resolving this error.

    I am going home now.

    Did you do every single one of those suggestions??
    Do you need to use IE or will another browser do - cause I'd recommend Mozilla or Firefox.

    Yes I did every suggestion.

    My preference is firefox, however the boss will want a answer as to why I can't fix it!

    The only step I had a problem with was the regsrv32 shell32.dll. On visiting other sites with information, it appears that this stage is only relevant for PC's running Win XP.

    Try this.

    Go to my computer, view/folder options/file types (or control panel, folder options depending on your operating system.

    Scroll down to the* URL:Hypertext Transfer Protocols, click edit twice and make sure the following is in the application used to perform action box:

    "C:\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\iexplore.exe" -nohome

    Nothing has worked.

    Have got him to use firefox at this stage.

    WIll probably have to reformat and reload from scratch.

    Thanks for the suggestions though
