i need some help. my ie is not functional anymore. if i go to hotmail will display that i'm not using ie, broswer limitation. i can't attach a file b/c there's no attachement on hotmail. so many site shows that i'm not using ie or i should upgrade to ie 4 up. trying to upgrade get a msg that i already have newer version installed. windowupdate.com doesn't work either..shows that it's only for window or ie users:)

how can i fix back i'm ie without re-installin xp
thks

To Reinstall IE6:

1) Insert the Win XP CD

2) Open Start / Run and type:
rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 c:\windows\inf\ie.inf

Press ENTER

Thank you for your interest in Windows Update

Windows Update is the online extension of Windows that helps you get the most out of your computer.

You must be running a Microsoft Windows operating system in order to use Windows Update.

Have you done any tweaking lately?

If not, you can try a reinstallation with the repair option (this will just over-write your files and make sure everything that's supposed to be there is there). Boot to your xp CD and select the SECOND repair option (not the first).

Just begin an installation and soon after the preliminaries XP will notice you have a version already installed. It will give you the option to repair. Do not take the first repair option, but do take the second.

are you using Naviscope or webwasher or some other program that can "Hide" the identity of the browser that you are using ?
Doing this gives the same error on the windows update page and presumably any webpage that insists you use IE6

Choose full install on the first screen when you start XP setup. At some point setup will detect a previous version. If you press R at this point (this should be the second time you are given the option), the repair is automated. The first time you are given the choice is for the Recovery Console, which is a DOS command line.

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
