    Hi and welcome.

    Try running repair option (sometimes works) for ie. I'm confused which version. I always had better results when on 98 with v 5.5. as v6 could give probs.

    Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG, then click OK - Startup(tab). How many items are listed there and how many of them are checked? Having a bloated startup load is the primary cause of low system resources. By trimming down your startup load, your computer will reap the benefit of more system resources, a shorter startup time, and better performance. Click the link below and read the article, "MSCONFIG - Reduce Your Startup Load".
