I am using Windows XP but I am having problems connecting to some Web pages. For example this Web page on the right
side has some advertisements and I do not see them. On a different computer using Windows 98, when I right click on the "ad" and properties it shows as Hypertext protocol. On my XP computer it shows "unknown" protocol. William, It sounds like one of Internet Explorer's usual hick-ups :) While I've never come across the exact same problem, I'm sure an update will help solve this problem.
You can download the latest service pack for Internet Explorer 6 from the following url: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.asp
