Re: white rectangle

What operating system and service pack are you using and what version of Internet Explorer is installed, whether or not you use it?

If your have a beta version of Internet explorer installed uninstall it immediately and install the latest version for your system, IE9 for Windows 7 or Vista and IE8 for XP.

SecurityCenter is an actual IE page and depends on a working broswer set to its default settings.  However it is fine if you wish to use an other browser as your default.

FYI: You can always download a fresh copy of the software from your online account.

Re: white rectangle

I also encountered the same problem. I actually follow the suggestion you have. I upgraded my IE browser to 9 and have set it as a default browser. Works brilliant. Thanks.
