    Hi waters,

    I am not going to be able to help you too much since I have not installed sp2, but maybe asking a few more questions might help for other's to be able to help you.

    What operating system did you upgrade from?
    Did this start happening right after the upgrade or later?
    Are you using IE6 and have you tried a repair/reinstall of IE6?
    What other programs are running when this happens?

    I'm sure there will be more questions, but that's a start.

    sorted the problem after spending days trying everything.
    got the answer from microsoft support for internet explorer.
    i was missing 6 files.
    i had to click start then run and type in regsvr32.urlmon.dll,then ok.
    after replaceing urlmon.dll with the 5 others it worked.
    i use reg tools so will be more carefull in future ,i think this is how i lost the files

    Hi waters....

    Thanks for getting back to us with details of the fix, always good to know something is fixed, but also very good to know the 'how' it was fixed, as it may help someone in the future with same problem. :)

    Cheers, TAS
