maybe, internet explorer itself has become corrupt ( faulty ). You could try getting a `free` freeserve disk or similar that has a newer version of `internet explorer` on it, and try installing that newer version rather than using his dated windows 98 version.

This should help i think

ps, see what the rest of the forum think first

Have you tried repairing IE from within itself. Go to Add Remove Programmes and click on IE then click on remove. You will get a dialogue box come up and ask if you want to repair or add a component,click on repair and see how you get on from there.

have you tried loading Explorer from one of the PC Advisor Cover Disks? I had a few monor glitches with Explorer but loading the version from the latest issue of PC World seems to have ironed them all out. It also retains all your favorites list etc
