I have Windows 2000 and Internet explorer 6 (6.0.2800.1106IS) with service pack 1 and whatever i visit on the internet can not be viewed offline. The content is there in Temporary Internet Folder, but somehow IE cannot link itself withit.
This problem occurred when i removed some ad-ware from my computer by using NortonAntiVirus and deleting registry values which that ad-ware added. Those values were all related with startpage, defaultpage, defaulturl and other common homepage hijackers values. And they were all in folders like "HKLM/../IE/Main" or "HKCU/../IE/Main" and so. After deleting all that, IE could't make "new memories", or to be precise: it stored data visited on the net into Temporary Internet folder but it couldn't display it offline. Only data which could be displayed was the old one, the one before the accident with ad-ware and deletion of reg keys. Since that data is erased after IE history expiration period, there is fewer and fewer offline content that can be viewed. There is a "side effect": all *.jpg images which i try save to my computer from IE can only be saved in *.bmp format! I tried with reinstalling the IE but it doesn't work. I don't know if there is a Repair option for Windows 2000 and would that work?
It seems that i have deleted all the viruses and ad-ware from my computer, so it looks like the problem is system related. Maybe it needs just one or two registry keys to be added which i deleted. Help anyone?
