    tarun, could this be related to the missing hard drive icon problem you had?

    Maybe a style issue.

    Are you using a default Windows XP theme?

    I tried the registry fix and replacing infs as per this guide, but it didn't work.

    Does this mean I should simply reinstall XP SP2 to repair IE 6?

    Will this work with separate windows xp and sp2 cds?

    Create a new user account and see if the same problem exists there.

    If yes then reinstall...

    Do u require IE? I think u should be able to download IE6 from M$, then update with online updates... But, ur SP2 idea should work as well

    Are you able to press ctrl+tab?? (thats the manual way of switching between option tabs )

    I'm able to press CTRL+TAB but not view any other IE tabs. Also have a control panel icon problem (persists even after SP2 reinstall).

    I've tried using TweakXP but couldn't rectify anything.

    I uninstalled SP2, performed 'sfc /scannow' with the Windows XP CD and then reinstalled SP2. Still the same.

    I could only change the homepage via the registry.

    Update: Installed IE 7 Beta 3. No problems now.
