    Hi all

    I have win XP SP2 installed. lately a Bug has developed in Internet
    explorer. and OE, I
    thought I would delete both of these programs and reinstall IE6.1 But Win XP
    wont alow it to be upgraded or Deleted, as its already the latest version.
    Is there a way I can Repair or
    remove the 2 programs and reinstall them? I gather the reason I cant upgrade
    them is that IE is the latest But repairing might do the trick.

    What sort of Bug, you may ask.
    Well its just running very slow and freezes up occasionally, Sometimes I
    have to turn the Computer off at the wall, and restart.

    Cheers and thanks

    Also try installing Spybot or Adaware if you have not scanned for spyware.

    Switch to FireFox.

    Sometimes, even those two spyware programs aren't enough. I used them both,
    downloaded all the free ones I can find, including the new Microsoft Beta
    program. EACH program found spyware/adware. This took care of most of my
    problems. btw... Microsoft's program found and fixed the most.
