    This morning I updated Spywareblaster, SpyBot, & added ID-Blaster Plus.

    Now I can not look at the 'Source' code on web sites - command located at: IE 5.5 > View > Source (now grayed out).

    System - 98 ME / IE 5.5

    Anyone know what nuked this command in IE and how to fix it?

    Never had this problem before this morning.

    None of those programs should cause that issue.

    I believe there is a command webpages can use to prevent you from viewing their source, although I don't know it off the top of my head.

    I believe there is also an Internet Explorer restriction along those lines. If you are experienced with regedit, try browsing to the key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions
    and look for a value named "NoViewSource"

    If you find it, delete it and restart your PC. :)

    Best regards,
