Why???....when I open my Internet Explorer 6 Browser on my Windows XP Professional operating system (buy the way, it has every Windows Update installed to date...that I'm aware of, that is), not all of the boxes on the page open? All that appears is a "white" outline of a rectangular box (this box will very in size from one to another) that has another smaller completely "white" box located in its upper left hand corner with a "red" X in its center. Just to the right of this internal "white" box with a "red" X in its center is some comment such as: "Click Here". If I click anywhere inside of this rectangular box, it takes me to another web page. It's obvious these are advertisements for various products and/or services. If I right click one of these boxes, then click on properties, it tells me these boxes are: "Hypertext Transfer Protocols".
This doesn't occur on every web page I select, only on some of them, but I don't like it and want to fix it.
The MS link I posted above echo's what Johanna is asking...
"If you are using a third-party Internet security, firewall, or cookie blocking program, contact the manufacturer of the program for information about how to enable scripting, ActiveX controls, cookies, Java applets, advertisements, and HTTP referral information."
Check your Pop-Up Stopper...

You are correct! I disabled my pop-up stopper and the problem is gone. Now I guess I'll have to contact Iolo.com (makers of System Mechanic whom provides the pop-up stopper) to find out exactly what I need to do to work around this issue yet still have the ability to use the pop-up stopper feature.
Thank you for all the help.
