The small popup window displays "page cannot be found".
They (the IS dpt) cannot find any security setting in the user computer that might be affecting this, and all the collegues' are having no problem.
To fix this, they just gave the user a new computer (should be upgraded anyway), but unfortunately(?) they in some way transferred the IE settings from the old computer to the new one.
Does there exist some setting that would block the technique used below? (the web site is on the internet zone)
The idea of the code is of course that when clicking "Open test window", a small window shall open which contains the text "Test in a small window"
This user just gets "the page cannot be found"
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/frameset.dtd">
Beginning of test page
var win = window.open(null, 'Test', 'width=400,height=500,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes');
alert('Error: no win');
var doc = win.document.open('text/html', 'replace');
alert('Error: no doc');
doc.write('<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/frameset.dtd">\n');
doc.write('Test in a small window\n');
<option value="" selected>
