A program will run on Win 2000, & XP SP1 but not on XP SP2

Hello,
I'm trying to troubleshoot why a specific program will run on Windows 200 &
XP with SP1 but not on XP with SP2. This is a program that is on a site,
very basic little thing, you click the link to open the file and it's
supposed to run and it does beautifully on systems NOT running XP with SP2.
The problem? Most of the world is now running XP with SP2. Any help in
identifing the problem and providing possible solutions would be most
helpful. If you need specific's please e-mail me at:
pattiearnold@hotmail.com and I'll provide them.

Thanks in advance.

Pattie

It is behind a password protected area, that is why I said if you e-mailed me
at pattiearnold@hotmail.com I would send you a link.

The solution may be as simple as setting IE6SP2's pop-up blocker to
allow pop-ups on the web site in question. Or it could a
security/permissions issue, as SP2 has tighter security than either
Win2K or WinXP SP1. Have you contacted the developer of the web page
and/or application to see if there are any specific security settings
required to render the application SP2-compatible?

Why would you ask for help on a specific program you are having problems
with and then not mention the name of the specific program and also not
mention the name of the website you run this program from?

If you want help you have to provide details, not just extraneous
information.
