IE6 will opens with blank address bars

By ericlyon ·
When clinking links in IE6 the new window opens with the address bar blank and the window just sits there. This also occurs with links from Outlook Express. I have reinstalled IE6 several times with no results. If I copy the link address into the clipboard I can paste it into the empty address bar and hit go and the window will open just fine. Is this a registry problem or maybe a DLL. HELP!

IE6 does not always get along with Windows 98, and is not supposed to function with W95.

I have had so many problems with IE6 and W98 that I no longer install IE6 on ANY W98 box.

I have seen reports that an updated video driver can help reduceIE6 problems in W98, so that might be worth a try.

Otherwise, drop back to IE5.5 SP2, or give Mozilla a try www.mozilla.org

I strongly suspect your version of oleaut32.dll is incorrect. I just resolved this issue for a client with 14 Win98 workstations. This problem was only on systems that had a new application installed that wrote a different version of this file to the Windows\System directory.

http://www.microsoft.com/com/dcom/dcom98/download.asp

The above link will take you to Microsoft's site to download dcom98.exe file. Download this to the desktop of the effected system and follow these steps:
1. WithWindows running, restart in MS DOS mode and rename the oleaut32.dll file to oleaut32.old.
2.Restart Windows to "safe mode" and run the dcom98.exe that you downloaded to the desktop.
3.Restart Windows in normal mode and all should be fine.

Hope this helps
