    HackMania,
    What may have happened is the the urlmon.dll( or other dll's) was/were not correctly registered. When you installed IE6 and reboot it probably registered itself. I will leave it to you to figure out how to re-register dll files.

    I had the problem you describe above w/IE 6.0 -I rolled back to 5.0 and the problem went away. When I installed c# I had to upgrade to IE 6 and that install properly registered the dlls and <ctrl>-N worked.

    to register a dll do regsvr32 <dllName>

    Opera rocks -fastest broswer I've seen in a long time.

    HackMania,
    See dspeidel's comments. I have seen this problem many times in the "field". Basically what happens is that the registry on your machines has an improper value pointing to an incorrect location of urlmon.dll. When you re-register it those values got correctly replaced. See http://support.microsoft.com/view/tn.asp?kb=281679 for more information. You may also want to read up on the registry and its role within Windows. I hope this help. Cheers.

    I myself would just make a clean un-install of IE, and then re-install it.

    not to put too fine a point on it...but a "clean" uninstall of IE would require an uninstall of windows...as bill says...they're "integrated"...there are some progs out there that that will sort of do it..and apparently win2k sp3 will allow choosing "alternatives" but right now you're kind of stuck with it...you don't have to use it...but you have to "have" it...

    as for how it got mangled...well it is windows after all...hehe...actually could be many things...corrupted dll...dll replaced by an older one from a recently installed prog...incomplete windows update...any number of things...using regserv32 is a good fix...if you know what the offending dll is...which is often not an easy thing to determine...

    your fix was the easiest and fastest...
