I'm not sure this is even a security issue but..... when I click on a link that is coded to open a new IE window, the new window opens but always displays "Page cannot be displayed". Trying refresh or copying the address over doesn't work either.

I've tried
- clearing all my temp and cookies files and restoring all the defaults,
- uninstalling and reinstalling IE in Windows Components,
- running all the regsvr32 *.dll files,
- scanning with AdAware and Spybot S&D and fixing the problems,

but......still no joy.

I've got 2 PCs both running XP SP2 hooked up to a Linksys wireless router/gateway and this problem only happens on 1 of them. My Norton virus definitions are up-to-date and my system is scanned weekly. HJT follows:

Or should I just reinstall Windows?

Could anyone please help?

log looks clean as far as I can see. a few minor things but nothing that should affect your problem.

Thanks for the advice, guys.

I've downloaded and run the SP2 patch but it didn't fix the problem. However....

I've just noticed that when I try to search a Help topic in the Windows Help function itself, an IE error message pops up saying "Exception: Automation server can't create object" which seems to hint to me that the problem occurs when another program calls a new IE window, even if the calling program is IE itself. Does that make sense to anyone? Does anyone have any ideas? I'm tearing my hair out here and I really can't bear the thought of wiping and re-installing Windows.

Cheers,
Kris

It could have something to do with your ActiveX settings, check this thread for more info:

Thanks for the suggestions, dlh6213. It didn't fix the problem but in any case I've fixed it now by wiping and reinstalling..... at least I didn't seem to have lost anything. :rolleyes:

Thanks again,
Kris
