Hi

I have Win XP and IE 6, but I cannot close IE 6 down with the red X in the top right corner, or by right clicking on the taskbar. It doesn't want to close at all. I have to shut the computer down.
A techical guy says that he has never seen this before.
Any suggestions?

Regards

Ron

Try reinstalling( repair) IE, & see if that help.

Go to Control Panel > add/remove Programs find IE then click on it & a menu should come up & their should be a check box called Repair.

Thanks Stu

Can;t uninstall ie 6...not in the control panel.
The X is a red button in XP.with a white cross.

Any other ideas?

Re-install it off a cd(pcworld nz mag always has a copy of ie6 on it(which outlook express is bundled with)

might wanna back up this file before doing so.

C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{D05EA910-56B5-4E32-9824-9A32800F5D74}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
