    I have a friend that upgraded to Win Xp Pro. When he is useing IE 6, it loads a page with no problem, but when he loads a sub like it comes up with a web page cannot be found or its just hangs there. If I send him a e-mail with a link in it, he cannot open a window. I put netscape in there and it works fine. Nothing was change when he upgraded from windows 98. Can anyone help me, I know its in IE 6 some where but can't find it.
    :confused:

    MAKE SURE HE DOESNT SELECT DETECT NETWORK SETTINGS OTHERWISE IT WONT WORK.
    BRING UP IE6 WINDOW > TOOLS > INTERNET OPTIONS > CONNECTION > LAN SETTINGS AND UNCHECK "DETECT NETWORK SETTINGS" .
    THIS MIGHT FIX THE PROBLEM'

    I would try doing a fresh clean install of Win XP. I've never seen an upgrade that worked, and I have tried it about 20 times with all the paths. I know its a pain but in the end the system will be faster and more stable.

    Try it I hope this helps

    IE6

    I had the same type of trouble with it. IE had a window with a picture of my desktop, and I could not erase it. the windows didn't even have an X in the corner or options.

    I would make sure that you have all of the downloads from the Microsoft website. And the other guy was right, there are many unexplained upgrade problems.
