You're doing this from the Application Manager on the Windows Files Tab?

How did you get here?

I don't like saying it; but until SP2 is out - download this stupid piece of junk.

When SP2 is out, install it and Internet Explorer will certainly work.

What makes you think that? I know that the explorer is tightly integrated inot the OS, but it can be re-installed (as the guy says he has re-installed it!)

click here You'll find the top download in microsofts internet download area is in fact Internet explorer 6 (with SP1)...

And if you go to windows update without IE6 you will be prompted to install IE6...

There thats two ways how you can install and re-install IE6 without having to Fdisk format and start again...

And on the subject...

All Fdisk does is set the partition table, it is not necessary to run Fdisk each and every time you format a machine, only if you want to chage partition sizes!

Did he not have Internet Explorer 6 SP1? Always have Internet Explorer 6 SP1 anybody who's reading this! Before you even try to go to what I just said to go to if you're in dreadful circumstances.

Sometimes these questions make me confuzzled when I have too much coffee in the morning.

Well first off i tried 6 and was lucky to go back to 5.5.XP users can't do this.
In the meantime will aliwaba drop by again Will he tell us what IEX ver he's talking about ?It is necessary to use fdisk
to clean your mbd's Total memory under 1 MB of 640 k.
for a "clean install"not a refresh.
At a Dos prompt type :

I woudl have thought a Refresh would do it anyway; but its still a little extreme just for that.
