Try installing IE6 again, then if any problems occur, try going to add/remove programs, and choose Internet Explorer, and then repair.

Hello Chris,

Go to the following linkand download ieradicator this small freeware utility will completely remove any version of IE and allow you to then do a clean install with the edition you prefer, just what you need.

make sure you read the info file before proceeding and pretty soon all should be back to normal.

Hi Chris,
the crashing problem, may be caused by lack of RAM. I've seen computers with Me/64RAM run ok, until you add something. adding another 64, or 128RAM seems to help Me run heaps better.
