Some people have reported problems opening the boxes at the top of the page using Internet Explorer 6.0. This is because these search boxes are set up to open as separate windows, and if IE popup blocker is set too high, it treats new windows as popups. This can be resolved in three ways.

1. Go to Tools / Pop-up Blocker / Pop-up Blocker Settings and add to the list--however this could be a problem if you visit other boards on that have popup ads.

2. Set filter level to medium, which will block all popup ads but allow new windows to open.

3. Use the links on this page, which do not open in separate windows.
