Just a little, yet irratating problem that can probably be quite simple to solve.

Briefly.....

1. Type site in address bar - OK
2. I.E finds site and Flash site 'front cover' appears - OK
3. Click 'Enter Site', but browser cannot open.

Can anybody help?

Cheers

It's not any particular site, but an example is:

http://tombudden.co.uk/

On the odd occasion, after clicking 'enter site', the site loads up then suddenly goes back to the 'enter site' page.

Also, this is a problem which is occuring on my parents PC.
System: Windows 2000 Professional. As far as know (and have tried), it is fully updated.

Thankyou for your help.

Hey again cew1, sorry for the lare reply.

Download:
CCleaner

Run CCleaner "cleaner" and "issues" scan.

Let me know if the problem still occurs.

What browser are you using?

Hey again cew1, ok it sound like it might be a flash problem so please download a new version of flash runtime.

Download:

Once you have downloaded and installed the new flash try and access the sites again and let me know if there is still a problem.

Cool :whistling:

Edit: Added new instructions

Hey again cew1, sorry for the late reply.

I am going to ask you to download a different browser:

http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

This is firefox a very secure browser, I am asking you to download and use firefox so that we can determine if this is a browser problem or other software. BUT if you have a different browser other than Internet Explorer you can skip the download of Firefox and try using the other browser (Eg. Opera)
