It would have worked, however, not having tried it it may have wanted to
know if you wanted to upgrade to that version. But it would have worked. :>)

Hi Vic,
I almost went out to purchase Windows XP Prof as I struggled with my problem
with the Internet Explorer would not load.   But I did not;  because I was
not sure that my Windows Xp, home edition would have accepted Windows XP
Prof.    Was I right?
Let me explain;   When my problem started a few days ago, I thought I could
fix my Internet Explorer 6 with "SFC /SCANNOW" and when I used that at Start
> Run, the system asked for my cd disk, which I could not find.    Now, my
question is;   I am running Windows XP, home edition and if I had used a
Windows XP, Prof edition, would it have worked?

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.
