I am using a Window XP Pro with IE 6
Three weeks ago I had no problem downloading all websites or programs.
In my "Favorites" sites I have three free online virus scan (Panda, Symantec and Trend).
After downloading Free Online Scan Home page of Symantec or Panda and clicking on "Scan Now" or "Go" nothing happened and I get a blank page. The same issue happened when in another website I clicked on a picture saying "View Lesson Demo" .
But: with the Trend Micro free online scan virus it works?!

BTW I found out also that I have a problem with the formating of
this "Post reply" : I can't use all the formating windows that I have just now in front of me such as "Font colours, "Font size", "Quote" etc.
I am clicking on them with "no effect".
Five days ago a friend recommended me to install Firefox browser to solve this issue.
But I can see that the root cause remain unsolved. I tried for example to write this thread using IE and Firefox, the lonely difference is that with Firefox I can download the "Smilies" (not with IE)

There is a very useful BBCode extension for Firefox that works perfectly with these forums. You can also use the drop down menu found to the left of your posting box which will show you the proper way to include BBCode to your posts.
Your current IE browser problems may be the result of your security settings for these sites being too high.
