    ie6 no popup problem

    hi

    i have xp ie6

    i dont know what happened but i get no popups and no java popups
    something is weird

    i do not have a popup program and uninstalled most programs

    i am installing service pack 1 for xp now

    i get a blank page with windows update and i tried to access system info in the accessories directory but nothing happens

    i ran the file check utillity but it went through the scan and eventually disappeared like nothings wrong

    went to ie and reset everything to default

    is there something i need to delete to get this thing back to normal?
    i have run adaware

    i uninstalled symantic anto virus corp but i am at a loss to figure out what happened

    update

    service pack 1 did nothing to help

    Is your Security Level set to Medium in Internet Options?

    Do you have Java installed?

    Today I actually had a client's PC exhibit the same symptoms you mention Egghead.

    I have not yet found a solution so I'll be keen to get to the bottom of this. The PC is running Windows 2K SP3, IE 5.5 SP2. No other PCs in the immediate area (same config) are having this problem. There are no pop-up blockers installed on the machine either.

    Problem: Javascript popups fail to load. Example of the type of pop-up here. (Click the picture to see the pop-up.)

    You may have to reinstall java. Go to this site to see if any java is working at all.

    thanks everyone.
    the security and all related folders are set to default and reset to lowest etc.....

    java has been uninstalled reinstalled etc...
    both SUN java and Microsoft.

    I get absolutely no popups of anykind

    kinda nice but i need to disable that.

    i will most likely need to format this stupid thing if i can't find the answer.

    how can i restore ie to original system file?

    is there something i need to run?

    i have uninstalled most programs from my computer and it still wont work


    SupaStar,
    check to see if you have the google toolbar installed
    they have added a popup stopper.

    How about the HOSTS file, sometimes ad-blocking and pop-stopping is in there, should be empty except for 127.0.0.1 localhost.

    Might have to re-install IE6 or repair it.

    Most of the cases I've see I was able to repair IE 5.5 or reinstall IE6.

    for IE6:
