  1. I'm not exactly a hero if it comes to fix problems that i have or had in my pc, this time it's no different.

    When i started my IE yesterday i saw there was something wrong. I noticed it when I intended to read my mail in hotmail--> It does not open my email message, neither delete it.

    So i went surfing a bit more, and again i noticed something a well known webpage there weren't any links at all. So i downloaded IE6 again, and installed it. But unfortunatly this doesn't fix my problem

    I hope someone can help me out here
    Thnx in advance!!

    If you Windows 2000 OS then do this

    Uninstall IE 6 , restart system , then install Service Pack 3 , if possible 4 , then install the IE 6 With IE 6 Serivce Pack 1 .

    This all Service pack are avalible easly on net.

    Hope this could solve this problem.

    thnx 4 your reply!

    I've tried this allready, but i'm running WinXP. and i have no clue how to uninstal IE6. The traditional way by: add/remove software->windows components->IE is not wil only remove the shortcuts and not the entire IE.

    If you can tell me how to remove IE entirely running WinXP I would be very grateful!

    Uninstalled SP1, it contains the Java VM that I think my be causing your problem.
