    Why do some web pages appear as lines of programming text? I am using XP pro with Internet Explorer and have checked Java allowance etc. I have McAfee Firewall and Virus protection. Any answers?

    Can you give us an example of such a page? Could be their web page has an error.

    Most of the time it is just badly written code.
    Try viewing the same site/s using another browser like Firefox.

    Thanks Canuck and Whooze. I can confirm the problem disappears if I use Firefox but it's a nuisance changing browsers. Canuck, I'll give you an example site next time it happens. Thanks again.

    I would suggest that your copy of IE is either corrupt or a third party add on is causing the problem.
    Open the IE tools/Internet Options and under Advance click on Restore Defaults. If this fails then uncheck the box "Enable third party browser extensions) under the browser heading.
    If this fixes the problem then you will have to find which addon is causing the problem.
    If the problem still exists after disabling 3rd party stuff then I suggest you download a fresh copy of IE and install it.

    Whooze - tried your advice and ended up re-installing IE. I'll see how it goes. Thanks.
