Computer Experts....IE 6.0 problem
Have you tried the following:
1.) Dumping all of the temporary Internet file utilizing the "Disk Cleanup" utility in the System Tools folder in the Accessories folder just off of the Start menu? This often helps to improve the tracking of IE - 6.
2.) Delete temporary files from the "Windows" folder on drive "C" found in the following sub-folders:
B.) C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files
3.) Runing Disk Repair followed by Disk Defragmenter - - again from the System Tools folder found in the Accessories folder. In my experience operating both of these from "Safe Mode" (press F5 while booting the system to get the safe mode option) will result in faster completion of the task as there will be less competition for memory resources. Depending upon how long it has been since these tools were last run and the size of your hard drive, it could take several hours - - I usually run Defrag as an overnight activity for the computer. While these will not directly impact IE - 6 it will insure optimization of your system.
4.) From IE - 6, go to the "Tools" drop-down and select Windows Update. Once on the Windows Update site check for updates for IE - 6. There might possibly be something that addresses the issue that you are experiencing beyond disk/system cleanup measures.
Good luck with your gremlin!
