    :eek:
    When I right click on start and select Explore in my Windows ME computer, I get two panes: the left one is COMPLETELY EMPTY OF FOLDERS, while the right pane has "programs, explorerer, etc."
    I would like to have the left pane display folders again, but I don't know how. Anyone have any ideas?????

    Hi, Usually repairing Internet Explorer fixes this issue.

    Read the following, all the way down to the bottom!

    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=194177

    If you have XP, there is another method: Since XP comes with IE 6, the entry for IE does not show in Add/Remove Programs, and you cannot run the repair utility from there...so> try this:

    Read about it first!http://www.theeldergeek.com/repair_ie6.htm

    Start button>Run

    Type in the run line this:[cmd] and hit Enter key once.

    Type this next to the cursor in the black box:

    sfc /scannow (one space after the c) and hit Enter key once again.

    Let the System File Checker run, it will take awhile, then it will NOT give any messages...either it works, or it doesnt.

    For other than XP, win2000, etc:

    The IE Repair utility is available if you have upgraded Internet Explorer from the original installed version> take a look in Add/Remove Programs, and if you see this:

    Microsoft Internet Explorer (someversion) and Internet Tools, just hit Add/Remove> we arent uninstalling anything, you will see 3 options then> hit "Repair this version of IE" and let the utility run to completion. You will see a message that tells you either it fixed something, or that you need to reinstall IE.

    There are certain steps to reinstalling depending on what your version of Windows is> and if you have XP with SP2 or not.

    Let us know what happens.
