MessageHi Vic,

I did not know that.   Are you saying that my computer has 2
sets of dll's & exe's for Windows xp?    A working set and a
backup set.

  XP has a "hidden" folder that will cause most mucked up
dll's and exe's of the system to be rewritten at boot time.
  XP checks those files at boot time and compares them to a
list - if you have the wrong version or size it will replace
them. But if your "hidden" copy gets mucked up by some
software then you have a problem.

  Hi David,

  I used dos to find where iexplore.exe and explorer.exe are
on my harddrive and then I used Winzip to extract both files
to a temp folder and then I used dos to copy over the existing
files in their respective locations and still it did not fix
my system.

  You do know that I can boot up Internet Explorer and Windows
Explorer in Safe Mode.
