Hi Trapper,

Don't get confused.   All my software work, even Outlook
Express.   The 2 programs that do not work are 1)- Internet
Explorer 6 and 2)- Windows Explorer (the file manager).
However, both these programs work in Safe Mode.    What does
that tell us?

Carl

  Hey Trapper,

  How about this;   I use Opera to go to Microsoft site and
download IE6 (the whole program) and then install here on the
hard drive.   Would that fix my Windows?

    ok now that you recognize that you have been told...pass
the offering plate and don't take out any change...ha!

    Carl that is a major issue with MS, and why they are
always in court. They claim that IE is part of windows...They
claim it..not me...as such it can't be separated out..thus the
quarrels with Netscape...Proprietary and all that..
    the things you mention are all part of winXP..they are
modular as far as I know..
    I think the ie6setup would have required you to go to the
internet to finish the dl and then have the original cd..not
sure on the last part..
    the ie6setup file was a dl on the internet..doesn't tale
long to "DL". it is not the whole enchilada...only accesses
you to the site to get the rest..
    Been awhile, but I think I got that part right..
    Opera has nothing to do with ie6 so it of course would not
try to fix it..I am willing to bet you they would rather the
ie6 stay broke..
    I don't know why you can' do your "DL" from certain
sites..
    Guessing here, but perhaps they have a contract with MS...
    I used Opera a long time ago..Back when I use to use
Netscape. Think AOL bought them out..Hate AOL!
    I will look to see if I still have a copy of my opera
about..Only take me a second to find out..ha!

    You mentioned doing online banking...doesn't that scare
the tar out of you???? I don't know about you but it took me
forever to get my money in the bank and I don't want to see
Iraq take all my $1.36 out and pay for a big mac...:-). To
easy to rip off..Just ask a buddy of mine who lost 1000's.
Still in litigation. A fancy lawyer term meaning they are
fighting over it and trying to get out of their
responsibilities. I recall a short while back there was a Lady
on here who had troubles with a employers deposit for
parole..Forgot how that story went..but it was a nightmare for
her..So those electronic things still spook me.

    Hi Preacher, uh I mean Trapper,

    Yes you told me.   :-(
    Yes I need to keep up with my cd's.
    Yes you done told me about Opera.

    Here's my concern about IE6.   I'm running Windows xp and
I'm told that Internet Explorer is part of Windows.    I don't
believe that.    If so, why do my other Microsoft software
work ok;   such as Outlook Express.    Why?    And if IE6 is
necessary for Windows Explorer, and I don't fix it (find my cd
and reinstall), how long will my computer last before the big
bang.

    Carl

      No Carl I have never ever lost a cd or a floppie disk or
a zip disk..Not only that I can tell you exactly where every
single disk is and what is on each and every disk. If I loose
a file or something gets crunched I can find it and have it in
seconds...I catalog everything. I believe I spent some time
with you awhile back on this matter.
      A lesson I learned way back at day one..
      I don't mean for this to sound like it does...I am not
angry or anything like that..A bit perplexed perhaps, but
really glad to know your working your way thru and finding the
answers.
      I am so glad to hear you found another system to browse
with..Glad to hear Pam was of help. But I also must say that
it is not like that is the first time it was ever mentioned.
As I said in prior a prior msg..I have told you all repeatedly
that there was lots of things out there better than MS and
IE..Even DOS was better and definitely Linux. I mentioned
opera several times...! It has been about for awhile now..
      The important thing is that you found it...I see no
reason now for you to want to go back to IE, unless your into
WebPages and need to see what others might be seeing with
their browser.

      Hi Trapper,
      So you've never lost a cd.   :-)
      I have hundreds and I throw them all in one big box in
my homeoffice.   I must admit I have some cd's in the wrong
jackets so I have one big job to check each one until I find
my.

      Hey, look at the bright side.    If I had not had my
problem with IE6, Pam would not have offer Opera.    Thanks
again Pam.

      After I run the anti-virus programs on the websites, I
will see if Opera fixed IE6.   :-)

      Hey, it aint a nightmare.   It's an adventure.   I'm
learning......... lots of stuff, like Opera has it's own built
in "refuse pop-up windows".   Isn't that great.

      Carl

        I am trying to figure that one out too...I am thinking
when he ran that program it nuked more than one folder and
inf. from his computer..
        Not being there it is hard to figure out what it is
...If he had his Cd he could end the nightmare and just
re-install...No offense to anyone but I am amazed that folks
loose there cd's. I can understand a cd from aunt Suzy with
kids games or something..but the major cd carrying the
computers guts...???? I hope people after this will catalog
their files and folders a bit closer and keep a tighter watch
on things...Them things aren't cheap either...

        There is a folder I386 on the XP cd and that is the
file you need, it is like what you know of as cabs for the
older windows. I copy this to the partition I install the OS
to so it is available.
        What is wierd is that Carl indicated he is having
problems with both explore.exe (windows explorer) and
iexplorer.exe (internet).
