this is happening on my grandmas comp and this comp has windows 98, the problem is that whenever i attempt to load IE nothing seems to happen, samething when i click on a link.

IThe same thing happens when I try to load "run" so i cant repair IE the two ways u just said.

I think the ways I posted are only for xp. Might be best to put questions like this in the 'other operating systems' area. You could always try a different browser. Mozilla is very eady to figure out.

I used to use Netscape then AOL broke, it. So I tried Mozilla, it used about 3x's the memory of IE, hate it, doesn't import bookmarks from IE, takes about 20 secs to load.

Reinstall IE:
go to Start menu > Run > type in
rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 c:\windows\inf\ie.inf
hit enter.

What do you mean by 'mozilla seems to freeze'? If it is a general slow down then it could be the ISP. If it is a complete freeze as does IE then maybe a format is due. If you do make sure you back up everything to put back on later, settings, documents, etc.

Are you using Mozilla 1.2.1, 1.0.1 or 1.3 Beta?

I recommend you use 1.0.1 for greatest compatibility.
1.2.1 is quite safe but is not as stable as 1.0.1
1.3 is a beta... so of course its not gonna be great.

As for 3x more Memory and 20 secs to load. Enable quick launch, Mozilla loads pretty much instantly. (which btw windows does for IE without telling you. IE is loaded whether you want it or not.)

3x more Memory is probably what IE does except that Windows has a habit of sharing that memory with explorer so you never truly know how much memory iexplore.exe is using.

this is all fine and good, but why would I want another thing in my startup if IE is already there? I just use IE because it is so integrated into the OS, why try and fight it? It loads pages faster, loads itself faster, and I don't have to have Intellipoint running to use the back/forward buttons on my mouse in it.

This is a no win argument, I just got used to IE and don't like anything else now.

j69zlr: We use Mozilla because we KNOW it is better than IE. Most people take it for face value and say, "yay... another browser to bog down my computer". What you don't realise is the extra features of mozilla. W3C compliance, Tabbed Browsing (oh just click that 101 reasons link.)

Okay, IE does its job. But it also then does extra stuff that microsoft doesn't want to share with anyone else. The internet is not owned by microsoft. If you are going to add extensions for programmers. Release the appropriate plugin for other browsers. Don't just go, we're MS, we want IE to be the top browser. I'm going to add powertool X for IE that no other browser can use so you can go F*&$ yourself.

Can we say ActiveX???

I'm not going to bother trying to get you to use Mozilla as you already have your opinions. Intellipoint doesn't need to be running for the back/forward buttons to work btw. You only have to install the drivers for your mouse (Who wouldn't want to keep their drivers up to date anyway).

IE does its job and it keeps you happy. Nuff said. For the rest of us, we know why mozilla is good, and we're happy.

If you would like us to be preachers and try to get you to do Mozilla or Phoenix (the Opera of Mozilla) then post here and we will all explain the good points to you.

Homer:
Mozilla 1.0.2
Mozilla 1.2.1

I recommend 1.0.2, when you are used to 1.0.2 then give 1.2.1 a try.

first things first, I said this is a no win argument, but back/forward does not work unless I have point32.exe running, this is the most recent driver. I thought tabbed browsing was a great idea until I realized that it doesn't really do anything different than having the tabs on the taskbar.

back to the actual topic, try reregistering all of these dlls
regsvr32 Urlmon.dll
regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 Shell32.dll
regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 Mshtml.dll
does it give the everything was done correctly message when you're finished?

Have you tried redownloading IE?
