I have just updated my browser to IE6 and when looking
up some websites, even though the "done" message appears in the bottom left hand corner (indicating the site has been found and presumably downloaded) the page remains blank. Can anyone suggest why this may be so. ??

Get Firefox1.0 and leave the IE6 Spyware collaborator behind.
