I need some help, please. I am running Win98SE and using IE6. Everything was fine until this weekend, and now I am unable to open new windows in IE. When I right-click to open a new window, it just opens an empty box and then hangs. The only way around that is to press STOP, and REFRESH. What is really annoying is that I also have problems on websites that when you click on a link it automatically opens a new window for you, but my screen just does nothing.
The other problem that goes with this is Windows Update. When I go to try that, microsoft tells me that I need critical new updates, but when I start the download, it just freezes up on me.
I have run all the Spyware, and have followed all of the instructions given at both http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/can...dow-t15843.html
but no luck.
I have tried to re-install Win98 and replacing the OLEAUT32.dll file, but that only made things worse, so I had to restore my backup.
Any ideas, help, opinions....anything?????
