IE window wont close

I cannot close any IE window as the X in top right of the screen does not work when I press it. Has anybody any ideas?

what operating system and what version of IE?

I have windows XP and IE 6.

go to start>run type sfc /scannow (note the space between sfc and /)

pop your xp disc in drive and xp will fix

I thought of doing that ,but I have a Time computer that does not come with an XP disc!

Oh heck, I hate that, when u dont get a disk.


You might be able to Uninstall IE and get a copy from the IE website.

How you ask?

Use IE first to get a copy of IE from MS website and download to your HDD, take off IE and then rerun IE setup.

Hope this helps.

i think that sfc should still work even withought a disc if the fils are locked in the CABS

You could repair it, never though of that one, if the above fails give the reinstall a go.
