Greetings, johnkesoglou !

What troubleshooting steps have you taken?

1. Disable third party extensions. With IE open, go to Tools > Options > Advanced. Uncheck "Third party extensions". Click Ok. Reboot computer.

2. Clear your cache.  Go to Tools > Internet Optins > General tab.  Under Temporary Internet Files, click "Delete Files" button. Click OK.

3. Reset IE settings.  Go to Tools > Internet Options > Programs.  Click on "Reset Web Settings" button. Go to Advanced tab and click "Restore Defaults" button. Go to Security tab and move the bar to Medium or Default. Click OK. Close all browsers. Reboot the computer.

4. Check if a program running in the background is interfering with Internet Explorer. Temporarily disable antivirus, firewall, antispyware, ad-blocker, popup blocker, and all Norton programs.

5. Repair or reinstall Internet Explorer and Outlook Express in Windows XP

I tried to post in vinduvin forum, but could not do so in Internet Explorer.  Check with the bulletin board owner, Yet Another Forum.net if there is a problem.  In the support forum, under announcement, there is a new owner.

Are you vinduvin?  In the forums that war1 pointed you to, vinduvin is already asking about this to get it fixed.  I'm sure you're on the right track.

If this was my question, I would accept war1's answer and follow up with Neven's postings in the other forum. Mr_Bliss2 may have shown you the way.
