I was trying to reinstall IE 5.5 but it tells me I already have a new version of IE. I keep getting the following error: WAOL caused a general protection fault in Module MSJAVA.DLL. AOL suggested that I reinstall 5.5. Not sure what to do at this point. Have always received help here whenever I needed it. I'm back again, lol. Can someone please help?? Tired of getting botted...... Thanks

IE 5.x/6.x comes with a repair tool. To use to it, go to the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel; Scroll and click to highlight 'Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.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.

***Instead of choosing the Repair option choose to 'Restore The Previous Windows Configuration', and click Ok.***

Hi again, ok, I've done that and I'm still receiving the program error. I can't access most sites, surprised I was able to get in here. What next? Pulling out hair!!!!!!!!!!

You should maybe go to add/remove then click on IE6 not 5
then restore. THis will take IE6 out and you should be back to IE5
You have to get rid of IE6 befor 5 will work

Thanks Pad, I could not find IE in the add/remove so I went to msinfo32 and under tool, was able to perform the repair to IE5.5. That didn't work either. Still keep getting the "above" error, although the wording changed slightly - "WAOL caused an invalid page fault in module <unknown> at 0000:05281ef0." Everytime I try to enter Pogo.com to play a game, I receive this message and loose my connection. Any further suggestions? Thanks

Since OE is not in the Add/Remove Programs folder go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com; Click Ok to the Security Warning certificate, if necessary, then download the appropriate critical and browser or Email reader updates as appropriate.

Thank you to all who responded. It seems that I needed to re-download IE5.5 after all. Since I've done that, everything seems to be back to normal again, thank goodness. Post closed, lol
