    IE is broken

    I am having a problem with IE not loading some pages. For example I today I couldn't load radioshack.com, but I could in the AOL browser. And I cant login to my email at mail.yahoo.com either. The pages just stall and never load. But they work perfectly fine in the AOL browser. This started in IE 5.5 and I updated to IE 6 to see if it would fix the problem but it didn't. If a page doesn't work, I now try the AOL browser, before assuming it is down. I feel stupid posting this question, since it is sounds dumb saying "IE doesn't load some pages, fix it", but I was just wondering if anyone has heard of this problem or is having the same type of problems. Thanks for any help.

    If I remember correctly, the newest AOL software is notorious for causing problems with other browsers/ISPs.

    I don't have this problem, but then again, I don't use AOHELL. Have you tried reinstalling IE? I don't think updating to IE 6 was smart, though - running beta is likely to cause more problems.

    Try repairing it. That solves 95% of the problems.
    mjames: I'm using IE6 (the second release of it) and I have found no bugs whatsoever. Ironically, I couldn't fix a problem I was having with IE5.5 through repair, but installing IE6 fixed it.
