    when the window opens does it have all of the normal toolbars and the status bar? Does your internet connection icon in the status bar show activity while the window is blank (and no other apps are using the connection)?

    What updates did you install? Go through each of them in Add/Remove Programs that was installed since this started happening, and check if any are related to internet explorer or outlook express.

    Good luck :)

    Either -

    1.Make sure IE is the default browser - http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=284456
    2.Close Internet Explorer and Outlook Express if either are open.
    Start/run/ "regsvr32 urlmon.dll" (without the quotes) /OK
    3.Open Windows Explorer.
    Go to Tools | Folder Options | File Types.
    Scroll down to URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol and select it.
    Click Edit or Advanced, depending on your Windows version.
    Select 'open'.
    Click Edit.
    "Application used to perform this action" should read:

    "C:\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\iexplore.exe" -nohome
    (Check the path to iexplore.exe to make sure that is correct and use the
    double quotes.) DDE should be checked.
    4.Don`t use IE at all.Use this - http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/ or http://www.opera.com/
