    It's hard to see why any sites should stop working. The only one that seems restrictive is Privacy... Did you experiment with any individual settings?
    <hr><font color=red>IE 6.0</font color=red>
    Choose Tools/Internet Options/Security/Custom
    Enable "Scripting|Active Scripting"
    Under Tools/Internet Options/General/Temporary Internet Files/Settings,
    Check "Every visit to the page"
    Under Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Accessibility,
    Check 'Always expand ALT text for images'.
    Under Tools/Internet Options/Privacy
    Set slider to "Medium"

    Note: If you do not want to allow most web sites to save cookies on your computer, you can add the lounge to your list of Trusted Sites, and apply the above Internet Explorer settings for your Trusted Sites. (You do this from the Security options tab by clicking on the Trusted Sites icon, then the Sites... button, typing www.wopr.com in the box and clicking the Add button. The checkbox next to "Require server verification..." should be cleared.) That way, you do not need to change your general Internet browsing preferences when you visit the Lounge.<hr>
    (I use IE 5.5; I don't think it has the Privacy slider.)

    I use IE 6 and have never had any problems. Check your security settings. If you don't change those, then the other suggested settings shouldn't have any effect on other websites.

    Charlotte,
    It's not just Woody's, I was having problems accessing a lot of Web Pages. For now I have gone back to IE 5.5 and things are much better.

    Whatever works for you! I've had no problems at all with IE6 on any machine where I've installed it. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Hi Charlotte
    I would tend to agree with you, except that IE6 does not always sit very well with Win 98. The poster does not say which OS he uses, but if it's not NT based, he's better off sticking to IE5.5 or below. If it's Win 2k or XP where the problems are coming in, then he's got a more serious case to deal with.
