    https pop up windows

    IE6 works fine when browsing webpages, but I can't see any pop up windows when using IE6 on my WinXP Pro workstation? Another workstation (WinXP Pro too) setup in a similar way does allow me to see pop up windows, so it's local to this one machine. I can't logon to a secure website; I see the logon screen, but get a white/blank pop up window after I've clicked logon. I think other pages that I've tried are https ones too, this might be the issue.

    I've had a look at what might be different within Tools, Internet Options, Advanced and within security, but can't figure it out?

    Hi, Ian ~<UL><LI>Internet Explorer > 'Tools' > 'Internet Options...'
    <LI>'Advanced' tab > Under 'Security' section, check 'Use SSL 2.0' & 'Use SSL 3.0'
    <LI>'Apply' > 'OK'[/list]If those settings are already in place, then you may be able to resolve your issue if you attempt with due diligence the steps in order as outlined in Troubleshoot Situations Where You Cannot Connect to Secure Web Sites by Using Internet Explorer in Windows XP.

    Re: https pop up windows

    Thanks for the suggestion Bruce. I've done a few further tests and it seems that any pop up window is prevented from showing it's contents. I tried to login to this website to reply to you, but the popup logon window was just white - I've come to a working Win98 machine to reply back?

    It's as if I've got a third party window popup stopping program running - but I've certainly not installed one, and I can't see anything in Add/Remove programs either?

    Re: https pop up windows

    Not sure if this will help, but when we run into strange IE issues we regsvr32 what we call the usual suspects: You can run each regsvr32 line from Start | Run. You should see confirmation after each one that it was registered correctly.

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

    Re: https pop up windows

    You're a star! Thanks very much, your second suggestion worked, re: running regsvr32 for each of the files. All of them came up "OK" and I've been able to see the pop up window to logon to this webiste and have just tested my other one that wouldn't work before too.

    Re: https pop up windows

    I hope you don't mind if I butt in, Scott. I noted your post regarding using Regsvr32 to fix strange happenings in IE. I took your advice and ran it.

    Everything was fine until I ran Shell32.dll, then this popped up "Shell32.dll was loaded, but the DLLRegisterService entry point was not found. DLLRegisterService may not be exported or a corrupt version of SHELL32.DLL may be in memory. Consider using PView to detect & remove it."

    I continued to use Regsvr32 and continued receiving " DLLRegisterService in .......DLL succeeded.

    So, I presumed that there was nothing wrong with DLLRegisterService. I ran SFC and extracted a new copy of SHELL 32.DLL and rebooted. The same msg. appeared as it did before.

    I don't know what PView is or how to get or use it, or what to do about a corrupt version of a file being in memory. If it's not too much trouble, would you please advise me about what I should do now.
