WINDOWS DISAPPEARING

by Dude37 / August 19, 2006 11:47 AM PDT

Greetings from the twilight zone... I have noticed that when I open a window in IE6, and type a site name, the window will disappear... For example, I opened NFL.com, went to get somethin to drink, and the window was gone when I got back... It doesnt happen all the time or on all sites, but it really doesnt like NFL.com... I cant find any errors with Registry Mechanic / Spyware Doctor / Zone Alarm antivirus... Anybody have this problem / ideas?

Thanks

goto start->run and then type in
'eventvwr.msc'

then click on the Application tag, and look on the right to see if there are any events with a yellow warning (!), or red (x) relating to iexplore.exe or explorer.exe

if there is an entry it will help explain what the error is...
