Hi,
I just started using XP and IE 6 with a new computer.

For a couple of weeks all went well, until I tried to open the source code for one of my own web pages.
I did a right click, then clicked 'view source' but nothing happened.
I tried clicking the 'View' drop down menu and then 'Source' but again with no result.

So, what have I missed? It feels like something simple but I'm finding XP pretty difficult from a settings / options point of view.
Any help would be very welcome and really appreciated.
Thanks in advance :tazz:

Hi and thanks for responding.
My PC is a Packard Bell and it came without the CD, even tho' I did ask for one instore.

Windows is set to download updates on auto but I don't know what it updates. :tazz:

The CD would cost around £81 from P Bell which seems steep as I already bought the XP system licence.

I just checked at Microsoft website and the PC has been downloading updates for IE - last one Dec 14th '05.

Question - is there a way to repair without the cd? Could IE be downloaded f'rinstance (without paying a ransom to Dell)?

Sorry to be a pest here but I need to write more html and I'm stumped.
