    Can't open new window (Explorer 6)

    I can't seem to open a new window when I hold shift and click link (also when right click and select open in new window). All it shows is the top of a new page and then hangs and I have to close the page again. Same thing happens when I click a link in an email. This problem started when I had explorer 5 and I installed explorer 6 in an attempt to correct it but it still won't work. Ctrl +N works ok.
    Any ideas would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Had a problem like that on someone's machine a while back. The only way we could fix it, was to wipe out their profile (windows 2000), and log them in again.

    Thanks Drew. I should have mentioned that I am using windows 98 so deleting profile isn't an option.

    You could try cleaning out your cache (Temporary Internet Files): Tools>Internet Options...>Delete Files...
