one of my users has issue with a training website. I tested the site and it works fine on other PCs on the network. I am not sure what the problem is. When the user clicks on the training link she does not get the pop up window. Instead nothing happens and right at the bottom of the of the IE window it says error on page. Any ideas.

I removed the flash player and reinstalled as that is the only requirement for this training site to work. But that did not help. Please let me know if there are any idea.
I also reinstalled Java.

Thanks

If you have server pack 2 for windows it can usually mess up your DNS for a fix try the following:

1.Open your cmd prompt from run->cmd.exe

May be I am not clear . The user can browse to the sites she logins to the website with her credentials just fine then it takes her to the topics when she click on the link she get nothings right at the bottom of the IE window it just says error on page.
Some thing is not right . She trys on another computer and it works fine.
Yes I made sure the pop up is not blocked.  That was the first thing I did.

Hello smartmanwin,

1. Clear your cache.  Go to Tools > Internet Options > General tab.  Under Temporary Internet Files, click "Delete Files" button. Also click "Delete Cookies" button. Click OK.

2a. If you are using Internet Explorer, check if the site is restricted or blocked.  Go to Tools > Internet Options > Security. Highlight Restricted Sites and see if the blocked site is located there.

2b. Also under Content tab > Content Advisor, check if the site is restricted there. Remove it.

2c. Also, under Security tab, add the website to your trusted zone.

3. Check if antispyware, antivirus, or firewall is blocking the website. Disable these programs one by one.

Hope this helps!

War1,
I tried all what you provided and nothing works. Here is a screen shot of the error message. One problem I am getting the Shockwave is not getting installed on the computer and also the when I try to click the link on the left bottom corner of the IE window I see Java script error.
The site works well on other computers. Any more ideas

For the script error:

Go to Tools | Internet Options | Advanced.
Check the box to Disable script debugging.
Uncheck the box to Display a notification about every script error.
