I'm running Win98SE and IE6SP1 with all updates.

In Internet Explorer, when I click on a link that's supposed to have a pop-up, the screen for the new pop-up window is clear. So I can see the title bar, the minimize, restore, close buttons, and the border of the window, but everything inside of it is clear, so that you can see whatever is behind the pop-up window right through it. I am pretty sure it's not a problem with spyware, adware, etc. If anyone needs more clarification of the problem or has a solution please reply.

Do you have any popup blockers or IE-SPYAD installed. It sounds like the contents are being blocked.

I have the google toolbar but it didn't say anything was being blocked. I also went into Spybot and disabled all BHO's and tried it but still nothing. I uninstalled the list from IE-Spyad but it didn't seem to fix anything.

This might be completely unrelated but it can't hurt to share.

When I try to open McAfee SecurityCenter a blank window comes up and an error message saying:

McAfee SecurityCenter cannot perform the requested operation successfully.
Msg: Incompatible version of the RPC stub.
Url:mcp//C:\PROGRA~1\MCAFEE.COM\AGENT\SCUI.DLL::McDash.htm?AppId=Line No:85

And when I try to uninstall McAfee VirusScan an error window pops up saying:

Internet Explorer Script Error
An error has occured in the script on this page.
Line: 445
Char: 2
Error: Incompatible version of the RPC stub.
Code: 0
URL: mcp://c:\PROGRA~1\MCAFEE.COM\AGENT\UNINST\VSOREMUI.DLL::uninstall.htm
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page? Yes/No

No matter which button I choose the uninstallation wont work. I also have everything McAfee related that was running in the background (update programs etc.) disabled from starting up so they wont cause other problems. Because I can't access pop-up windows in IE I can't install a fresh version on my computer and am pretty much stuck. Hopefully this helped with something.

98SE and Office 2000. I just discovered the Office update website a few weeks ago and I installed all the updates for Office then. I do believe it was around the same time I started having these problems so one of the updates may have messed something up.

Hey buzzworthybum. I would start with the directions in this MS Article:

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=836929

You are probably correct in that it was caused by the upgrade. There are additional articles that highlight that issue.

Cheers.

I ended up using the mcrepair.exe file and it fixed both of my problems very nicely. Thanks for the help.
