Windows 7: browser ?

browser ?

Hello all,

I'm having a problem with my browsers in Windows 7 32 bit and was hoping some one
here can help me find a solution. When I go to some sites which pop up a log in screen,
I get nothing. the activity icon goes round and round, but nothing pops up for these sites.
It works fine on other computers but no go on this one. I checked everything I could think
of....plugins for both IE and FireFox. Nothing would make them work properly. Tried fixing
the TCP/IP stack through netshell, resetting both browsers to default, removing suspect
programs, and get nothing. I was wondering if any of you had any idea about what it could
be ? Right now it looks like a re-install is my only bet but I have lots of programs installed
and it would take way too long to reinstall all of them.

Thanks in advance...


OS.........Windows 7 32 bit
CPU.......Quad core AMD Phenom

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc

In this order
Popup blocker
Internet Explorer Pop-up Blocker - Turn On or Off

In IE go to tools
Internet options

Delete temporary files
disc cleanup
Disk Cleanup - Open and Use

Then download and use ccleaner

Try and see if problem is rectified after each step, but boot first.
The cookie tutorial is good for 7 as well as vista
