I tried installing IE over what was already there and it told me I have a newer version then what I was trying to install. Don't see how that's possible...I got the the program/install from Microsoft.com. Plus this was only about a week after a clean install. :rolleyes:

run the download directly from the internet...even if that dialogue comes up, there should be an option to cotinue, so do it...backup before you start.

If I were given the option to continue, I would have. A message just popped up saying the version I was running was newer then the version I was trying to install. OK to cancel...No other options :(

Might sound extreme, but why not reinstalling XP over itself ? I know that there was an option to repair IE5.5, but I don't remember exactly where, maybe in 'add/remove windows components', IE, repair, not sure if it's not elsewhere, someone may know what I'm talking about...

That's not extreme, that's common, xp should recognize itself, and perform it's own repair

Reinstall XP to fix IE?

I think not.


So has anyone come up with a factual answer yet?


thanks!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
