Hi all, I have a strange one for you
OS is ME, browser is IE 5.5
(not my machine, but one here at work)
when I right click and choose open new window, and new window appears, but no address in the adress bar, and it does not open the page, however I can enter a url in the new window and it will open. Also clicking on a link in Outlook Experss will not open a window or fetch the link. I have Copernic, and can open other windows with it.
I have run scanreg /fix, and reinstalled IE, and scanned for viruses
This machine also can not run the windows update, opens the java window, but it is blank, and if I try to fetch any update I get
"The following updates were not installed. To try again, click the Back button below.
Internet Explorer 5.5 Service Pack 1 and Internet Tools
Could not be installed because of an unknown error. (-2147221164)"
after the 469 kb download
this happens for any update
