View source code

Question

Since upgrading to Windows XP from ME I have been unable to view source on any webpage including my own. I right click on a page, get the drop down menu, click on view source and nothing happens. I am on AOL version 9.0 but also have 8.0 and it does not work with that version either. I have Cox Cable and have tried to view source using Internet Explorerv 6.0 and I cannot access it that way either. I did do some research online and found other people have this problem. It was suggested deleting temporary internet files and cookies to help solve the problem. This did not work for me. Can you suggest anything else that I can look at or settings that might need to be changed? Thanks for any help that you can give me. Since I am learning HTML coding I like to look at the coding on various websites to see how things are accomplished.

This usually happens when the disk space allocated for Temporary Internet files has been reached To delete all temporary Internet files, click Tools, Internet Options, Delete Files button in the Temporary Internet files section.

I could also be if Notepad.exe is missing or damaged But, it should work after you delete the temporary Internet files.
