    I have tried all of those before and no work. What happend was i went into ie repair .. and before I knew it I hit the reconfigure to previous .. then it restarted and it went to 4.1 or 4.7 ,, ie .. or something.. I don't remember.. but I figured i would just reinstall when It restarted. But it didn't .

    I get the explorer has caused a error in Browseui.dll and will now close... .. click it and it closes. I get wallpaper and nothing else.. ctrl-alt-del... shows antivirus an delvdr 16 .. .. when in safe it just does the same.and adds the help ctr is causing a error and will now close as well.. . so knowing I have deleted the browser I should just be able to extract the original browser...ie5.5 from my ME disk.. only one problem... I don't exactly know how to do that .. and some of the scripting at the ms site does not work in my application... I am running ME .. Zone alarm freeware... pc-cillin.. the cleaner.. secure lock.. and a few minor other things.. I have A 40 gig hd and 512 mb.. A09 bios on a dimension L800r .. pentium 3 ... 16xdvd.. optical mouse..... what I figure is I am having a conflict in my downloads comparing to my browser which has been reset and is not allowing my pc to even start as it is causing errors.. I was running 6.0. but I went back to 5.5 with no problems for weeks.. and was just running the repair as it had been a few weeks since I have made sure all is well and I fell asleep at the keyboard and woke up and hit the button while it was sitting at the reconfigure by accident.. Moral,,,,,, Go to bed when your tired... sigh...

    NEED HELP!!!! from the command prompt!!!!

    What happens if you press the Windows key on the keyboard? Is the Start Menu displayed and if so, can you get to a Windows "Run" line? If you can get to a "Run" line in Windows, try this command,

    c:\progra~1\intern~1\ie6setup.exe

    I know nothoing about Win ME. However, if you need to reinstall IE 5.5, can you do an overinstall of the OS using your original Install CD?

    Not really, but I'm assuming your pressing it after you've responded to the Windows error message and you have nothing but the wallpaper displayed on the desktop. Is that when your pressing it?

    Not sure if Windows ME has these .exe programs but do this and let us know what you find. Boot to the Windows ME boot diskette and take the option for "Minimal Boot". Once you have an a:\> prompt do this

    dir c:\winfile.exe /s

    Does it find winfile.exe?

    dir c:\progman.exe /s

    How about progman.exe, does it find it?

    Just to be 100 percent sure, is that a typo when you mentioned Wmeexe? Were you able to find Winfile.exe ?
