  • 2. Where to get FULL IE 6.0 to download?
    My father-in-law is getting a C++ runtime error on iexplorer.exe and wants to look at reinstalling IE. All I can find is the 500k byte file to download and then it launches IE to get the download. But he gets the C++ error after opening IE and can not get the internet to download anything so I wanted to find the full version and I can copy it to CD and take that over and try to install the new version. thanks
  • 3. IE Compatibility Mode
    Hi, I have IE 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2.050301-1519 on Windows XP Service Pack 2. Not too long ago, Internet Explorer cannot open web pages on my computer. I can open them with Windows Explorer. Web page short-cuts on my desktop cannot open as well. The Start > Run cannot open web pages after a URL is entered. Hyperlink within e-mails cannot be opened as well. There's an Internet Explorer Compatibility Mode dialog box is prompted with the message "This is being run in compatibility mode and not all features are enabled" when I attempt to use Internet Explorer. If I click on OK, it opens a blank page, even though I do have a default page. What happened to the Internet Explorer on my computer and how can I get it back to normal and not open in Compatibility Mode? Thank you very much in advance, Steven Louie

IE6 Printing and Print Preview problems

We are having a problem with IE6 at the moment, when you 
click print or print preview in IE nothing happens at all 
no error message or event's logged nothing at all!  The 
toolbar print button does nothing also.  This seems to 
have happened on machines we have moved from our old NT 
domain to the new AD domain.  IE does this for any user 
domain admin, local admin and normal users.

PC's are Windows 2000 SP2, IE6 SP1.  I have tried loading 
Windows 2000 SP3 and the Cumulative Patch for SP1 but 
still the same.  If I uninstall IE6 and go back to 5.5 
printing and print preview works fine reload IE6 and it 
stops again.

One more thing on the windows update site I can select the 
downloads and click start download I get the EULA click 
accept and nothing happens?

3.Print and Print Preview problem

I have a weird behavior occuring in IE 6.0 and I'm not sure if this is the
appropriate group (please point me to a better one, I'm running into a brick
wall with other CSS groups).  I am trying to use HTML
to display documents to a user.  I want the rendered version in the browser
to look the same as the print preview (I know probably not the best
way to do it).  If I have multiple pages, everything works just fine.
For some reason that I can't figure out, when I only have a single
page, IE when it goes to print (print preview included), will add a
second blank page, regardless of what I do.  Below is a sample of what
I'm trying to accomplish...any help or pointers would greatly be
My JScript is there to deal with a margin issue, I want the margin to appear

5.PRINT PREVIEW - - problem printing multiple pages per sheet

Hello again,

In IE6, when I select FILE / PRINT PREVIEW, it looks EXACTLY like the HP 
printouts.  In short, there are radio buttons along the top including PRINT, 
a button to eliminate (or hide) all radio buttons, a << button, a < button, 
Page (with the number 1 in a box) of 1, a > button, a >> button, a decrease 
(-) button, an increase (+) button, a % size box, a drop down box that 
states: As laid out on screen (with two other options: Only the selected 
frames, and, All frames individually), a Help button, and a Close button.

In addition, just like the printouts, the web page is ALL left (about 1/4 of 
the total width of the original page) and this is why one page that should 
print on a single sheet, takes 3 or more pages to print (everything is ALL 

Do any of these issues sound familiar, ring a bell, or give you any other
