My company's website is having a bizarre experience: our links have stopped working, suddenly, in IE8 only. They focus but don't trigger the target URL to open. Naturally, most of our clients use IE8. No changes have been made recently. The site is DNN-based, and we've opened a support ticket with DotNetNuke, but I'm stumped. What should I be looking at?
Memail me if seeing the site would be helpful and I can give you the URL.

I have a cheapo IP WiFi webcam, its video & audio feed is viewed via an ActiveX plugin in IE. I want to access theses feeds in Linux. I was wondering if there was some tool I could use in Win XP to monitor the network traffic on my PC when using IE to access the webcam, to get the full URLs to the audio and video feeds. All the tools I have used so far just give me the IP address and port, not the full http address.

I just reformatted an XP laptop and installed Service Pack 3. I don't use Internet Explorer for browsing - do I need to upgrade to IE7/8 anyway, just for in-built security? Or can I safely leave it at 6 if I don't use it to browse?
Apologies if this question seems really, really dumb.

My company forces the use of Internet Explorer for a number of internal sites. Now, they're also enforcing the use of an old version of Java (1.4.2_06) instead of just warning you. The trouble is I have Java 6 installed and despite also having 1.4.2_06 installed, IE 7 refuses to use it. [more inside]

if I clicked on it today). Can this be done? [more inside]

Both latest IE and Firefox are hanging. I get the following two errors in Event Viewer Application Log:
1. Application Hang
Hanging application firefox.exe, version 22.214.171.12488, hang module hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, hang address 0x00000000.
2. Fault bucket 943649184.
I've run chkdsk...defrag...Dell diagnostics on memory and system. Nothing is jumping out. I've even run Ccleaner, nothing fixes this issue.
My google-fu is failing me...

I have a web site using Wordpress and I'm trying to figure out a css problem with IE. The first thing I'm doing is creating a seperate IE stylesheet. I've followed all the instructions found in the Wordpress forums but can't seem to get IE to pick up the new stylesheet. (I've already asked this question there but haven't gotten back anything that worked.)
Here's what I've added to my header.php *below* the call to the regular style.css:
Here's my code:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/style-ie.css" type="text/css" />
I know that IE is picking up the if-then, because I added a random text string in there and IE showed it. The way I'm testing whether or not IE is getting the style-ie.css sheet is by changing the color of the menu bar from orange (non-IE) to white (IE). I've also tried hardcoding the path to the other css sheet and that didn't help.
I'm at my wits end. What am I doing wrong?

When using IE 6 or 7 and printing a page from the same website using two different computers, but the same printer, one prints at half a page length and one prints the desired full page. The print preview for each matches the way each prints. I can't figure this out for the life of me. Anyone?
