Hi Guys,
as anyone else experienced IE not wanting to display our forum site ? The home page loads ok then when I go to type in my username it just bombs out and says this Tab has now been recovered, page disappears for awhile and then returns to the home page, try again and its the same, only happens on the forum site and all my other tabs work perfectly, have virus checked etc etc.

Anyways to resolve this I downloaded the latest Firefox and hey presto it works fine.....would just be interested if anyone else has experienced this or knows the reason...

cheers

Never too far...

Need to re-install IE, too many porn sites eventually corrupt IE!

Or even better install FireFox... http://www.firefox.com

Hee... yanking your chain! Another option is to reset IE:

Tools->Internet Options->Advanced[TAB]->Reset

If that doesn't work try:

Tools->Internet Options->Advanced[TAB]->Restore Advanced Settings

If that doesn't work try disabling unnecessary add-ons(like Google Toolbar, etc.), they have a horrible way of killing IE:

Tools-> Manage Add-Ons->Toolbars and Extensions

Honestly if that doesn't help re-install IE!
