Still no response. Check out the screenshot. There is some weird frame in the browser (lower grey section).

What browser is that? What happens with the other browsers?

That is Internet Explorer (I blacked out my favorites). Chrome and Mozilla seem to be working fine.

Download the Fix IE Utility to your desktop.

Before running the utility, make sure that all your Internet Explorer windows are closed!

* Extract the contents of the .zip file to your desktop.
* Double click the Fix IE Utility button to run the tool.
* Click Run Utility
* Click OK when you see 'Re-registered all files'
* Open Internet Explorer and see how it works.

No joy. still unresponsive. The frame bar is no longer there, so that is progress. This is a bugger I just don't understand.

I'm stumped. I'll check with a colleague and get back to you.

I am considering packing it in and cleaning off the computer and reinstalling windows. It's been 4-5 years on this computer and it may be a good time to refresh the system. I have done this many times before on other computers but forget something every time. Do you have any tips or advise when doing this?

Thanks

That's a good idea. Save your important data to an external harddrive or DVD's. Also, make a note of the programs you have installed so they can be re-installed and re-format and reinstall the OS.You could try doing a Repair first. That may just do the trick.

To wipe the drive clean, re-format and reinstall the OS.
