IE6 freezes on testmy.net - win2k

OK, heres a puzzler for everyone!

I have a PC with Win2k and IE6.

Fully patched scanned and clean.

If I come to testmy.net via IE6 The page will display then the IE6 window freezes. I can wait 30 minutes and nothing happens.

Everything - I mean everything - even simple links. If I try to close the window I get the wonderful MS  "Not responding" window. 

So far (please keep in mind I do not do much browsing) this only occurs on testmy.net. and a few other sites.

I have no problems with firefox... 

I have googled the problem and nothing is really helpful.

I have uninstalled every possible "plug in" and "toolbar" (java, google, etc)

I have uninstalled ie6 and reinstalled.

I have uninstalled using Ieradicator and reinstalled

I have scanned using spybot, hijackthis, adaware, AVG, blacklight you name it.

I ran a windows repair.

I have re-registered all the pertinent .dll's (urlmon, etc)

The problem still remains.

Ideas?  ...other than the "Just use Firefox then..."  response?  I do need IE6 to function and it is a convenience thing -  when using IE6 for the IE required sites - sometimes I open testmy.net and of course I get locked up.

CA3LE:  it still works!

MUD: um- er, uh  :oops:  How about a week or two? Starting now? 

I mean honestly, my bank of Commodore 64's has worked so hard to get to 3rd place, and I wouldnt want to dissappoint then by letting them get beat.  Have a heart!

I guess I will have to dust off my old slide rule and start burning some midnight oil ... :angel:
