    Whenever i click a link that opens a new browser window in IE, the window will open, but the new window will be transparent and will not load. In order to get it to load i must hit stop, then refresh. I have tryied updated to XP SP1, and IE SP1. I have also reset all the options to default, all to no avail. Im thinking of just going back to opera untill i want to waste an hour of my life reformatting agian. Any suggestions? Nothing in the M$ KB Either.

    Do you have a firewall that might be getting in the way of this? Even more likely is some sort of pop-up blocker that could be causing the problem. After all, the HTML command target="_blank" forces a new window to open and a pop-up blocker could be seeing this as something to block the content of.

    Just food for thought.

    No pop-up blocker, and my firewall, sygate, isnt blocking them as it didnt before the problem arose.

    if that doesn't work

    IE/Tools/Internet Options/Advanced - uncheck the
    option to Enable third party browsing extensions

    if that should also fail?

    try creating a new user, see if the problem persists.

    if not - try BHODemon and see if you can locate a Browser Helper Object that may be gumming up the works;
