Hi, I suggest re-install IE, this would fix any problems with possible corrupt files etc.

I to have been having this problem. It occured after installing service pack 2. I have searched the forum and found a few posts recommending to fix IE from add/remove programs. Will try this and hope it fixes the problem.

Also now I get "Internet Explorer could not open the search page" error message appear when typing a web address in the address bar.

Anyone any ideas about this?
