when i open an email (say a forum update from ntfs.org), and it gives me a link, and i click on it, IE opens up, but there's no address in the address bar. also when like WMP9 is like "click here to update" it'll open IE, but with no address in the address bar. how can i fix this?

There is an MS knowledge base article with the fix for this, deals with having to register a url.dll file but I cannot remember the name of the file.

Hi BenQuilter,

If you mean I.E. is opening blank empty windows, try this

Run the following commands from start/run. Run each line individually. After each run, you should see a short message stating the command was successful. The first command is the one most likely to work.

regsvr32 Urlmon.dll
regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 Shell32.dll
regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 Mshtml.dll


I dont think you need to restart your computer, just close and re-open I.E.

Hope this helps you

hmm, i fixed it. it might've had something to do with me going into the thing that SP1 added where you can choose your default browser, email, etc, and i specifically chose IE, and not "default browser" and then i clicked a link and it worked. or maybe i did something wrong w/ the cmd lines and they started working. who knows?

What does the 'regsvr32' do?

When you run the command it checks that you have the correct version for your system, and they are correctly registered, after each command you should get a short message stating the command was successful.
