Current platform, Windows 2000 SP2, IE 5.5 SP2.

Issue that I am having is that when I click on a link and it is supposed to open another IE window, it opens the window but doesn't display the information.  If I click the stop button on the new open window, then hit refresh, it opens the site up correctly.  Any ideas

Try this got to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and find the one listed for IE6. Now click on it  and then on the button marked "Change/Remove" a window will appear with a couple of options. One of which is "Repair...". Give this a try ans see what happens.

As per my description of the software, I am not running IE6, I am running IE 5.5 SP2.  I did check however and this was not an option with IE 5.5 SP2.

Sirry for misreading your original question. :>)

Do you have any adversions to upgrading to IE6. This may help fix the problem granted the problem shouldn't be happening to begin with.

Close IE and check task manager to make sure there are no iexplorer.exe processes running.

You could try this:
Go to start |  run
type    regsvr32 urlmon.dll

I had actually tried teh regsvr32 urlmon.dll before contacting Experts Exchange, checked whether or not there was another instance of it running as well.

This issue may occur if one or more of the following conditions is true:

The Windows registry values that control this function are missing or incorrect.


The Internet Explorer files that control this function are not registered properly.

What are the incompatibility issues?
 
>>>I had also heard that there were several bugs with ver 6.

All versions of IE have bugs. I am using IE6 and have had less trouble with it then I did with IE 5.5. :>)
