Help with IE6sp1

Hey all!

I'm running ME and IE is REALLY acting up! Some pages load fine, great! Some won't load one ad. Some, like any CNET or Yahoo page (including this one) will only display text, but not buttons, logos, ads, etc. Some won't load at all, but display the "this page cannot be displayed error."

I've tried reinstalling IE6 to no avail. I've run multiple virus scans, (swatit, stinger, spybot, adaware) and I had three infected files, but I cleaned them. I don't have multiple winsock files. I'm at a loss. I need your help.

The article "Troubleshooting Browsing Error Messages in Microsoft Internet Explorer" describes the steps you can use to troubleshoot the following error messages:

a. The Page Cannot Be Displayed.

b. Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site Web address. A connection with the server could not be established.

Tried that...

But no luck. That's all stuff I've tried already but I still can't get all pages to load right.

I downloaded Mozilla, but I have the same problem...some web site's pictures won't load. What does this mean?
