Problem In Ie> Open In New Window

Recommended Posts

My firewall "did" something to my registry and now whenever I'm in IE 6 and try to Open a link in a New Window, I get the smallest imaginable title bar and nothing else.

I'm running Win98SE.

I've been prowling around the registry and think the fix should be in:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Document Windows

where I found the following values that I changed

name - old data - changed to

width - 00 00 00 80 - 00 00 04 00

height - 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 04 00

Maximized - "yes" - not changed

x - 00 00 00 80 - 00 00 04 00

y - 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 04 00

This had no effect. And yes, I did reboot.

Any Ideas???

Please Help

This is driving me crazy

oh ya, about 400 times

OMG I am toooooo impatient for my own good.

Sitting here, I re-read your post and noticed

close the first one

of course, I had 5 or 6 open IE windows.

So, I closed them all and then enlarged and maximized the problem one, and closed it. rebooted just to be sure

AND thank you - i was blind and now i see

Thanks terrorist,

I should have known this, but, well ...
