Angry pop-up window (about:blank)

Howdy, I gotta problem. When I left click on some thumbnail graphics, I get a pop-up window that has the following in the blue banner at the top of the window: "about:blank - Microsoft Internet Explorer, and where the full size graphic, or photo should appear, the window is blank. At first I thought the problem may have been my Stopzilla utility; however, when I disable Stopzilla, and I have even uninstalled Stopzilla, the problem continues.

Anyone out there got any ideas on what my problem might be? Sure do need some help with this "bugger".

Thanks in advance, orchided

it happened to myself and I had to do a complete format and reinstall, it is something in going on behind the scenes. Try uninstalling and then reinstalling Explorer that might do the trick.

Repair Internet Explorer 6
A number of XP users have reported situations with Internet Explorer 6 becoming corrupted and reporting a number of different errors. While there is certainly no guarantee, the two procedures listed below have restored functionality to IE6 for many users experiencing problems.

Note: Both methods listed require that the Microsoft Windows XP CD-ROM be available.

Method 1: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x Repair for Windows XP

From the Start menu, select Run.
In the Open field, type sfc /scannow (Note: There is a space between sfc and /scannow)
Select the OK button.
Follow the prompts throughout the System File Checker process.
Reboot the computer when System File Checker completes.
Method 2: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x Repair for Windows XP

From the Start menu, select Search, select All Files and Folders.
Select More Advanced Options and place a checkmark beside Search Hidden Files and Folders option.
Ensure that Search System Folders and Search Subfolders are also checked.
In the All or Part of the File Name box, type ie.inf
In the Look In drop-down menu, select C: or the letter of the hard drive that contains the Windows folder.
Click the Search button.
In the search results pane, find the ie.inf file located in Windows\Inf folder.
Right click the ie.inf file and click Install on the context menu.
Reboot the computer when the file copy process is complete
