The past week, when I visit particular Websites, they seem to 'hang', like
they load to a certain point and then that's it, whilst most other websites
are fine. I have run 3 different virus/adware programmes which haven't
helped. I've also tried disabling/enabling the add-ons and I've looked at the
system registry which still hasn't helped! The sites I'm having trouble with
are www.bigpondmusic.com.au and www.ninemsnmusic.com.au and there is another
music purchase website as well. I have installed all updates, and am running
IE 6.0. Help!! I am on the verge of Formatting my C drive just so that
something will work!

Clear the IE cache. (IE, tools, Options, Delete Files button, include offline content.)

Pictures do not appear as expected, or you receive an error message when you open an HTML file :

Go to Start/Run, and type: REGSVR32 URLMON.DLL Then open IE, Tools menu, Options, Program Tab, and click the "Reset Web Settings"
button.
