Javaranch Newsgroup Crashes on Win98 SE

Hi,
I have recently experienced the problem of not being able to read the Javaranch newsgroup on my Win98 SE machine. When I click on any of the postings in the newsgroup, it complains that it has performed an illegal operation. It happens on both IE 5.5 and Netscape 4.73. I tried to repair my IE using the repair function in the add/remove programs in the control panel but the problem still exists.Any ideas how to solve this problem ?
Thanks.

What does the "SE" stand for?
I know I have used Win98 a bazillion times accessing JavaRanch without any trouble. Maybe it has to do with the "SE"

Hi Paul,
SE stands for Second Edition.

I use win98 SE at home and have had no problems ... strange!


Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.

Ketan,
Have you upgraded to (for the bazillionth time) the latest patch of IE5.5?

Hi Peter,
I have not installed the Service Pack 1 for IE 5.5. I will download and install it and see whether it solves my problem. Thanks.
