On this webpage - http://www.ddl.org/forening.htm I cant see the buttons in IE6 on one client, but on all other clients I can.
What is wrong with this one client. !?

My guess is that they may be java related and you may need to get updates for your IE6.  Have you tried the windowsupdate.microsoft.com site yet?

Make sure all Microsoft VM boxes ~(relating to java) are ticked.

Also look for any other abnormal settings.

Also, do you get any errror messages, or place holders on the page? When something is wrong, it is normal to get some sort of feedback.

Place holders indicate that you are missing the proper plugin to activate the buttons.  I will only assume that they are Java.  You can take a couple of paths here.  Go into your Internet Options and make sure you have Java enabled. If that fails, write to the web master of the page you are having a problem with and ask them what kind of buttons they are and what is needed to use them.  Then, at least you know what you are after, getting it won't be didficult unless your browser is corrupted.  You can download Opera, or some other browser to test it, if you get to that point.

RudolfFRaDK:

Did you try my fix?

IE6 comes with the java features turned off(for legal reasons)

Unless you have turned them on before, they will still be disabled.

Also, I have the MSN browser installed and it works there, as well as IE 5.5 with SP2.

You can get the MSN from the side bar at www.msn.com, it's easy to get rid of when you are done narrowing down the problem.

Jell - I have checked all the Java boxes. But you are right it surely is a Java problem - I have just helped another client with the same problem: He asked me to come and install the Java Virtual Machine - the browser asked him to install it, but he didnt have admin rights. And after I allowed the installation as admin - it worked.

Now the question is - What if the first client she have answered no to the browser, when it asked for the JVM ? - How can I install it then ? It is windows XP, and ie6.
