spring tech says the only solution is to reload windows, so that is what is being done.

After you reinstall Windows try this. Open the Control Panel, select IE, click remove and you should be presented with 3 options (Install, Remove and Repair). Try the repair option next time. I believe it should work. It sure bailed me out a lot of times.

Hope this helps.

sprng tech's reload of 98se did not solve my problem even after a 2nd trip back.

i have installed a later version of bluelight isp and this has solved some problems, but i think other problems (related to typing) somehow are related to the touchpad -- like the cursor jumping back into earlier text, or text becoming hilited by itself.

D.O.---when control panel is open, where do i find I.E. to hilite it.

Select "Add/Remove Programs", find and select MS Internet Explorer in the list of installed programs, select REMOVE. You should get a menu of choices at this point. One option is to REPAIR Internet Explorer. Select this and let the process run. This should correct any problems in the settings and such if there are any.

And since it sounds like you may be having touchpad problems, it may need tuning, usually in the control-panel mouse settings, and there are ways to reduce the sensitivity of the touchpad, so it does not so easily jump the cursor. Many folks cant use the touchpad, because it is not properly adjusted, and dont adjust it because they dont use it.

Unfortunately, all the different models of touchad have slightly different control and settings software. Poke around, and look for "touch sensitivity". There is also, usually, a way to disable the touchpad when there is an external mouse plugged in.

after a 98se reload and the D.O. "repair", i still have the error message, but can get past it after one or 2 tries.

next, i will try to tweak the touchpad.

I wonder if you can get your $97 back for the re-install that did nothing?

Have you tried the knowledge base at the Microsoft web site?

Grasping at straws, did you try to get a copy of Firefox from the club library, and see if that works? There are many things that can go wrong with Windows that would break both IE and Firefox, and about as many that would Break IE and let FF run. Even if you did not want to run Firefox, installing it might provide a hint as to where the problem is.
