Hi Guys
I have a problem with Hyperlinks on web pages not opening and also downloads giving blank screens.
I have looked around at some Microsoft articles and tried a few things but so far no luck.
So heres the problem.

Running IE6 and Windows 98
Have tried repair on Explorer and also un-installed and reinstalled.
Have run also Spybot and Spyware Blaster.

Similar to problems in Article 27696

Nothing happens when you click the hyperlinks on Web pages that are supposed to open a new window.

Nothing happens when you right-click a hyperlink on a Web page, and then click Open in a new window.

If you visit the Windows Update Web site, you can scan your system but when you try to download the file you see the "Preparing to Download" message but the progress indicator does not change. Other download sites just open in a blank window.

In Microsoft Internet Explorer, on the Edit menu, when you click Find (on This Page), it does not work. Error 35 Incompatible version of RPB stub.

It says click Run, type dcomcnfg, and then click OK. Unfortunately it comes with error of not found. Also the find function can not find it either on the hard drive.

Also tried these from the following article with the following results.

article 180176

regsvr32 oleaut32.dll ok
regsvr32 shdocvw.dll ok
regsvr32 actxproxy.dll Failed
regsvr32 mshtml.dll ok
regsvr32 pdm32.dll Failed
regsvr32 Shell32.dll Entry point not found.
regsvr32 Dcomcnfg File not found

So now I am a little confused as to what and where to go and need some help. I am not sure if these DLL's are required and where do I get them from as my disk has them all zipped.
I would appreciate any help you can give etc.
