When T try to use the internet a number of webpages are downloading with gaps in the text. The gaps do not occur on every webpage but they do occur on webpages from different sites, even some pages from Bleeping Computer. They also occur when I use different browsers. There is one other strange characteristic. sometimes these blanks occur on a web page where I am required to make a selection from a number of alternatives, for example, the Windows XP Forum on the Bleepingcomputer opening page, however, if I click where I believe or know that the word should be, then the computer accepts this entry and makes the correct choice of website. My daughter tells me that, although the text is absent, the underlying hyperlink is still active. The response is bizarre since I seem to be clicking on the ghost of a word. The problem only occurs on my Dell Dimension 4500 computer. I am most concerned about the missing text since on many pages the text is incomprehensible with so many blanks. Please can anyone suggest a cause and a solution to the above problem?

I would be grateful for help on this forum since I have been unable to find any help elswhere.

I have had a response from elsewhere which has helped with this problem.To Arraknid: I have investigated a suggestion about faulty fonts and, using Tools<Internet Options< Fonts< , I selected two new default fonts. I then used Tools<Internet Options<Accessibility< and selected the three options to alter the appearance of web pages. The text now appears to be complete. The problem seems to indicate errors in the Fonts that were being used although I am not completely convinced since the errors in the displayed text were not consistent and after looking more closely at the errors they seemed to be mainly confined to words printed in Bold. However, this approach may help other people who have this problem.
