I'm running win2k sp4 on a Dell optiplex GX60 with celeron processor. This machine came to me because user had a very bad malware infection. It has been cleaned and is now pretty bare bones.
When I got it, it could/would not see the Microsoft update website. After much work, finally rolled back IE as far as I could, and then installed 5.5 from CD I had. That seemed to make it work ok and was able to get the updates all installed. The last update that came up was IE6 sp1. Once that was downloaded and installed, IE will not open. No error message, just a brief flicker of activity on the processor and then nothing!
I rolled it back to 5.5, and it works.

Any idea what's bringing this on?

Sounds like it could be further infection,

Please go to the malware forum in my signature and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

Ok, I've done it once, but will go through the steps again and see what happens.
Thanks
