I think by the time it is finished with a 2oo gig drive, you'll be ready to call it a night and I already will have. I'd like to look into why the sfc won't run and maybe try that again tomorrow if you think you'd like to. You've already formatted and installed a couple of times without resolving the issue...it's time to find out what's going on. It might be something really simple that we just haven't hit on yet. See what the chkdsk comes up with when it's finished...see if it repaired or replaced any files when it ran the file checks.

I've got to be up in about 5 hours, so need to catch a few Zzzzz's...

BTW...I'm in Bozeman...about 90 miles North of West Yellowstone. And you're right, this is some gorgeous country...(the flyfishing is outrageous!)

Try uninstalling and reinstalling Internet Explorer.

Get this Microsoft download of IE6 SP1...save it to disk and install it after uninstalling the current installation.

Yep...we gotta get rid of it...it's the same version we want to install. Have you downloaded the version from the link I provided?

Go to Control Panel and open Add of Remove Programs...look for Microsoft Internet Explorer. If it's not listed, I have a little registry tweak that might let us install it over the top of the current version.

I tried to d/l but what is given is an exe file that in turn goes after the next version. When I attempt it says that I have a more current version and then stops.

Download the attached zip file and extract the file by right clicking on the folder, choose Extract All...click Next, and use the browse button to choose your desktop...click Next

Right click on the file and choose Merge...accept the change.

Try the download again...

Ok...

I've been searching for a fix for this and I've found a lot of folks in the same boat, but no fix. Here's what we'll do. I'd like to run a repair installation of XP to the machine. You'll have to download SP2 again, but I'll give you a link to an IT version you can burn to a cd so you'll never have to download it again. SP2

Run this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's

Once this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates again.

You game?

like i said before, i am willing to just start new, but I will give this a shot. The good thing about a new build is that I don't have many personal docs to back up.

It's always a good idea to back up important files, but the beauty of the repair is that it leaves your data intact and only replaces the system files.
