Simple fix - do a "system restore" to a date that you remember your IE working correctly. In XP "Start-All Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore." This same thing happened to me and system restore worked for me. It takes awhile for it to operate so let it do it's thing. Good Luck!
PS - When doing a "system restore" you will lose any programs that you installed between now and your restore date but the files generated from programs will still be there just reinstall the programs.

If you are using a IE browser i say forget about it, its probably better now that it cant go on the internet preventing you from getting viruses and spam. you should go to mozilla.org and download the latest version of FireFox it can block pop-ups and also it stops the browser from installing unwanted garbage

I've been reading your Firefox spamming of these forums for some time now. Can you please stop your aggressive spamming activities before they get any worse; can you please try to help people get rid of their problem in a normal way, before you say that they could try Firefox?

As for FF stopping pop-ups, yes, if you set it correctly to do so, it does. But it won't stop the installing of unwanted 'garbage', or else Spywareblaster would be out of a job...

Since Firefox doesn't have an integrated tool on its own yet that allows you to edit your HOSTS file or block malicious sites in another direct way, and none of the extensions seem to be doing that either, or they haven't been translated to Firefox 1.0 yet, it's also some dumb advice to give on here. By default FF does not block cookies, you have to set it to do so... Did you?

So why don't you write a tutorial on how to install, setup and use Firefox first, place that in our Tips&Tricks forum, wait for it to be accepted and then think you can go spamming the boards with it? Or else I have the feeling we'll be inundated with questions about FF and you will be nowhere around to answer any of them.
