Hi I'm running Windows 98 and every time I try to open 'properties' for Internet explorer, it will not open. It looks like it's trying to, as there is a quick flash of a box appearing to open (milli-second) Is there anything I can do to get around it or fix it? Thanks 'guys'

Internet Explorer 5.x/6.x comes with a repair tool. To use it, go to the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel; Scroll and click to highlight 'Microsoft Internet Explorer 5/6.x' in the Install/Uninstall window; Then click on the Add/Remove button; Select 'Repair' the current installation of Internet Explorer radio button; Click on OK. Restart your computer when prompted.

Hi just one thing- -I can't find Internet Explorer in the list for add/remove programs. Not sure what version I'm running - would you recommend d'loading a more recent version?

To determine the IE version there you'd start IE; Click the Help menu; Point to About.

Yes, I'd recommend IE 6 and all the Critical Updates and Service Packs from http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com Keep going back in there until you have all the latest Critical Updates and Service Packs as well.

Hi welshjon,

Try this for repairing IE. Go to Start | Programs | Accessories | System Tools | System Information and click Tools. Then you can click get to the Internet Explorer Repair Tool and do it from there. See how you get on with that.

Cheers

Liam
