you may wanna check whether the security settings for internet are the same on all the machines. also, are they all part of the same domain/workgroup, are you local admin on all machines or other etc.?
what browser and OS are you using?

they are both running XP Pro sp2, browser versions are the same, and i have restored default IE6 settings on both machines.  Works on one, not on the other.  Mysterious?

are the two on the same segment and workgroup, with the same permissions. how do you connect to the internet, do you have a router, or is one of the PC's your gateway?

also: since SP2 the internet firewall is enabled by default, so go for what tosh9ii says.

another thingy to check for is port filtering in your NIC's properties.

I have been having other "strange problems" and inability to print from Internet explorer.  I get some message about Res not found preview.dlg.  I am thinking a reinstall wound fix my problem. can anybody advise on the correct way to reinstall IE6.0.  ACtually for that matter, can I repair my insallation of windows XP using the setup CD-ROM?

I would first go with trying to repair Internet Explorer before doing a repair installation.

To do a IE6 repair, click start, run, type in the open box "rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\Inf\ie.inf" without the quotes. Or you can search for the file ie.inf on your harddrive and right click -> install. Be sure to have your Windows XP CD handy. Have a look at .

To do a repair installation, boot with your Windows XP CD, on the welcome screen choose to install windows XP. It will search for previous installations and then if it finds the installation of Windows XP on your hard drive you should press "r" to do a repair. The installation will run through. For a detailed procedure have a look at .

You should also try for do a SFC /scannow on the command prompt just to see if all your system files are still good.

Hope this helps.

Is IE really broken? Checked the cookie settings?

I had a user complain to me that since I applied SP2 to their computer their "training website" didn't work.

In Internet Explorer:
Tools -> Internet Options, Choose the Privacy Tab, and then Click Sites.
In the Address box, fill in and then click on allow.

Now close IE and try browsing to the link again.

Alas, the last suggestion about trusted sites didn't work.
however, i do have the following information:
IE error
Line: 170
Char: 2
Error: No such interface supported
Code: 0
also I get the following strange behavior from Outlook when I try to print an e-mail i get the following error dialog and then it doesn't print
the diaolg is oddly called Internet Explorer Script Error
"an error has occured in the stcipt on this page"
Line: 228
Char: 1
The specified module could not be found.
Code: 0
URL: res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\shdoclc.dll/preview.dlg
do you want to continue running scripts on this page? YES NO
I also tried repairing the IE6 installation, and that reported no errors, neither did verifying the windows XP installation, everything looks fine.
but I get these odd errors
