      I had similar problems with IE. I also had trouble in windows explorer ( that is dependant on IE ) I eventually though it might be a hard drive problem so I reformatted the hard drive and everything worked fine after 2 days of re-install. Then it happened again about 2months later.. this time I figured out it was IE. IE6 had to be un-installed (something I ddin't do the first time) then re-installed. Everything worked fine after that and also after I did all the IE6 securitity patches.

        I've done all the obvious solutions and to no avail. I think something has corrupted 98. I'm just burning all my personal files onto cdr prior to commiting 98 to the deep. I'm going to run dual boot with 2000 and XP.

          Don't go totally blaming your system (but also don't hesitate to upgrade). I've had a lot of experts examine the problem on various OSs (it's an even bigger problem on the Mac, see the separate thread) and for every weird problem that gets reported (and there have been some weird ones) I get several on virtually identical setups that say all is fine.

          Even the author of the menubar script is stumped.

          The only constant has been IE (although NS users have other weirdnesses here, unrelated to the menubar). The only browser I've not had any bad reports from is NS6.1, on both Win and Mac platforms. Even then, NS has some display irregularities that can make some pages look less than their best.

          It seems without trying I went and pushed the envelope. Kind of funny, considering the number of complaints I used to get about my old conservativeness. Maybe I overcompensated

          Hopefully new browser patches will fix this, plus there's an upgrade for the menubar app due very soon.

          I'll take this opportunity to express my gratitude for all the testers and all the suggestions (even though they haven't worked out yet). And of course our most excellent members who, bless them, think our little strand on the web is worth all this inconvenience.

              98 started a rapid descent into senility after my last post so I laid it to rest and now run 2000/xp dual. 2000 reminds me of NT in its processes and thats no bad thing. I dont think there was any basic flaw in 98 it was an old install probably clogged with old files and debris. Everything is working fine now, thanks for the pointers.

                by Gary Richardson
                Over the last week or so, I've had problems with my connection here. I connect OK, and everything functions fine, then sometimes if I've been on a while, the site seems to lock up and stop responding to me. If I break connection, it will not allow me to re establish for about 10 mins. Then when I...

                Some new weirdness for me here that just started this afternoon.

                When I do a "Last 24 Hours" or "New Posts" search, it shuts my browser down immediately after the "Your search is in progress" message.

                It happens in both IE6 and Netscape exactly...

                IE6 SP1 troubles
                by Doug Nelson
                My turn to gripe about browser oddness. Service Pack 1 for MS Internet Explorer 6 was release a week ago. Ever since I installed it I've been having problems getting 100% of images to load on a page. Usually it's small gifs, like the arrows in these forums, but it happens on many websites. Reloading...

                Inoperative "New Posts" button.
                by Gary Richardson
                Since the system back up of Retouch Pro the other day, I can't seem to use the New Posts button.

                Each time I use it I get Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

                Have changed no browser settings, and before the back up had no trouble with this function....
