www.mozilla.org

might help to isolate the issue

ok, so we know it is an ie issue or an ie-integrated feature issue.

Hmm....an dyou went through all the tabs in ie properties and pressed default as directed above

OK

go here and download the ieset up routine

http://www.snapfiles.com/get/ie6.html

Do not install yet

Start > run
regedit
<enter>

navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{89820200-ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4383}

In the right pane, right-click the IsInstalled value, and then click Modify.

Change the value data from 1 to 0, click OK.

Quit Registry Editor, and then install Internet Explorer 6.

Done all that Gerry, but when I try to install ie6 from setup, I am told I am running a newer version - quit.

I'm fully Windows updated too.

Pete.

If you do not have a windows xp disk, download RC.iso from the following link:

http://www.thecomput...edic.com/rc.iso

You need to burn this image to a CD and boot your computer with it--this is different than burning a file to a CD. If you do not know how to burn an ISO image, then download the following program to another Windows XP machine, install it.

http://isorecorder.a...isorecorder.htm

After installation, right click the RC.iso file you downloaded above and choose COPY IMAGE TO CD.

Then reboot your broken PC with that CD in the CD-ROM drive.

This will give you a recovery console to use to run
when you have the cd made, post

Hi Gerry,

I do have a Windows recovery CD purchased with the PC, is this the same as the ISO CD you are referring to?

I've downloaded the iso file, but the rest of your post -

You need to burn this image to a CD and boot your computer with it--this is different than burning a file to a CD. If you do not know how to burn an ISO image, then download the following program to another Windows XP machine, install it.

I don't understand. How, and why, do I have to download this to another PC? I haven't got access to another.


Next problem, the alexfeinman isorecorder is pretty technical, for a novice to understand all the options;

10/31/2005: Build 1.30. Bugfix: if no -l option is specified, the label is now set correctly to YYYYMMDD representaion of the current date

07/09/2005: Build 1.29. Fixed a minor bug. If a file specified in the command line does not exist or is inaccessible, a warning is printed and the return value (errorlevel) is set to 1. This might break some of the existing scripts that check explicitly for the return value to be zero. If no files are specified to burn, the empty session is not created any more. THis means you can now use createcd -erase to quick-erase a CD-RW.

01/29/2004 : Build 1.25. Made change that allows CreateCD to run even under an account that does not have administrative privileges. Note that in this case CreateCD might not be able to reset IMAPI subsystem if it becomes unresponsive

06/14/2003 : Build 1.15. Fixed a problem with writing on a CD that already contains some files. Previously CreateCD would not accept such CD claiming that "the media is invalid for the operation." Thanks to everyone who reported this.


You see? I haven't a clue!

I'm sorry, canned response...was in a hurry.

just download and install on the current system

You don't need to worry about that other stuff, other than you need to download the correct version for your OS

ie sp2, get the sp2 version, sp1, get the sp1 version

then right click the file, choose COPY TO CD

what I want to do is blow away a certain file that will not delete from within windows--we will need to make a quick registry chance as well...let me know when you have the cd ready

In the meantime, go to MY COMPUTER > LOCAL DISK > DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS

what folders do you see here?

before we get too far along, you might want to try this step first

Control Panel > internet options > general tab

Delete files under temporary internet settings

in fact, this might be easier still

what I want to do is delete the index file (along with the other temp internet files) and see if we've got a corrupt file in there..

the way I was going to propose is complicated and I'm getting complicated it not what your after
