OK, what did I screw up?(9 posts)

OK, what did I screw up?Spoke Wrench

I just installed a dsl modem. I can obviously still post, but only because I know where to click. The boxes that say "Add discussion," "Reply" etc. are blank. I can't make the pictures come up either.

Who knows how to fix this?
what else did you change?DougSloan

Any settings changed, like java, cache, etc? I'd change the IE settings to "default," log out, reboot, and log back in. If that doesn't work, it's well beyond me.

OS is windows 98. I'm using Internet Explorer right now. I also have Mozilla. On Mozilla I get the prompts, but if I try to access them, the computer locks up and I have to disconnect it to shut it down. On Internet Explorer, I don't get the prompts, but, since I know where the boxes are to click, I can actually post messages.

in IE, assuming it's version 5.0 or higher, select tools/internet options from the menu bar.

in the 'temporary internet files' section of the general page, click "delete files".

when complete, in the history section below (on the same page), click "clear history".

on the same (general) page, again under 'temporary internet files', click the "settings" button.

in the 'settings' dialogue box that pops-up, be sure the radio button beside "automatically" is selected under "check for newer versions of stored pages".

click ok to close the 'settings' box. click ok to close the 'general' box. close IE and restart windows. try again.

if this does not work, you may need a large hammer.

Thanks for the suggestion.Spoke Wrench

Actually, well I own several hammers of various types, I think that I might delay implementing that suggestion for a while. This is the only program that is affected that way. I find making posts here to be a lot like riding my retro grouch bike that has an 8-speed cassette and 7-speed bar end shifters. I obviously can make it work, it's just not quite as perfect as I would like.

uninstalling IE, restarting windows reinstalling IE, restarting windows, and loading the RBR page again. that's always a good idea. i hadn't thought about it as i considered IE in a corporate setting (restricted or installed only by techs in many standardized environs).

let us know if that works.
