  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

    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.
