JSI Tip 4962. Some Windows XP hyperlinks DO NOT work?

When you press some hyperlinks in Internet Explorer 6.0, they DO NOT work.

Hyperlinks that open the URL in the same page work fine, but hyperlinks that should open in a new Window do nothing?

This is indicative of an improperly registered Urlmon.dll.

To register Urlmon.dll:

1. Open a CMD prompt.

2. Type CD /D %SystemRoot%\System32 and press Enter.

3. Type Regsvr32 urlmon.dll and press Enter.

4. Press OK to dismiss the successful registration dialog box.
