Internet Explorer stopped working a few weeks ago (always says "Page Cannot be Displayed"). I have Mozilla, Netscape and Opera on the same computer, and they all work fine. I am running WIN 98SE. So far I have:
1. Downloaded IE6 SP1 three times. Each time the install seems to go OK, the system reboots, and then while the system settings are being updated I get a message that the file "mstime.dll is missing or corrupted." The second time this happened, I copied the file from another WIN 98SE machine, but it made no difference.
2. Tried to repair Explorer, to no avail.
3. Tried to reinstall IE5, but it will not install because it says that a newer version of IE exists on the computer.

If I could remove IE completely I would try to reinstall again, but I do not know if it can be removed. Do I have to reinstall the operating system to repair IE ? :confused:

Hi

You could try rolling back IE to a previous version, you can do this form Add/remove programs. Once you have rolled back as far as it will go, then download IE6 and try to install
You can completely uinstall IE using IEradicator and then reinstall, but I would leave that as the final option.
