    Here is the rundown:

    Windows 98se, IE 5.5sp1. Have searched MS site and tried all thier "fixes" and still nothing. Have tried uninstalling 5.5 and reinstalling but can only attempt to repair when I choose to uninstall (two dlls are "too old", scrrun.dll & urlmon.dll). Have reinstalled hoping to overwrite. Have done sfc to restore the dlls. Have put build 3802 of virtual machine on.

    OKAY! Here is the problems. When I attempt to run Windows Update it tells me I'm running an older version of IE 5 and Internet Tools and that I need to update, gives me the link, I download so it can tell me that I am already running a newer version and aborts the install.

    When I attempt to login into most sites (I notice CGI is in the address for these sites) I can only get a "PAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED" message. Refreshing does not help. I do not have PCT or TLS selected in security options.

    If I click on anything related to javascript, nothing happens.

    Hope this is enough info for ya! LOL!

    Appreciate any help you can be.

    http://www.windows-help.net/windows98/troub-20.shtml, might help the new version/old version update problem.

    Do you have your Internet Security level set to Medium in Tools > Internet Options > Security tab?
    Have you tried clicking the Restore Defaults button on the Advanced tab?

    Silence- yes, I have reset the defaults on the security, program and advanced tab.

    JMatt- I'll take a look at the links you sent. I agree with your opinion of the earlier version...just trying to get there! LOL.

    Thanks for your time! I'll let you know what happens.
