1. ie6: broken "open in new window" and broken drag and drop..

Ok... so all of a sudden IE6 cant open a link in a new window. It just
kinda stopped doing this, no new software was installed or anything,
it just crapped out. Also, there doesn't seem to be any more drag and
drop functionality. Before i could drag a link from one IE window to
another, now it wont let me.

I have tried the following fixes  for the link in new window problem:

rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE5Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet....
didnt work.

regsvr32  urlmon.dll.... didnt work.

I am running IE 6.0.26, wk2 pro sp2.

any assistance would be appreciated.
