    Hi fmiller

    Try a repair of ie

    Go to start\settings\control panel

    click add\remove programs

    scroll down to "Microsoft internet explorer" and click add\remove

    You will be given 3 options

    choose "repair internet explorer" and click ok

    Answer to both questions
    1- i HAVE VERSION 6.0 SP1 ANR ACROBAT READER 5.1

    The second Question is I have done that and It didnt help. I also uninstalled Outlook express and reinstalled it and that didnt help
    The message I get doesnt say error message but just says internet exployer cannot download. I also has a red x in the top of the left hand corner
    I also have Norton anti virus that does everythng and I went in and did find and fix problems and still the same.

    It often helps to delete your cache folders in MS-DOS, thus forcing MS to create new ones, containing brand new index.dat files, on reboot.

    Start the computer in MS-DOS mode. If you're running Windows ME, that means starting up with a Boot disk.

    Type the following lines, pressing ENTER after each one:

    cd\
    cd windows
    smartdrv
    deltree tempor~1
    deltree history
    deltree cookies

    NOTE: Press Y if you are prompted to confirm any deletion

    Type win (or 'exit'), or hit ctrl-alt-delete followed by clicking enter in order to return to Windows

    NOTE: This is assuming the path to these folders is the default one
    Is they're located elsewhere/named differently, adapt the path accordingly,.
