Re: Affiliate.Com

You can order the SP2 CD from microsoft...I think it might be more than 2-3 hours for your download...

I dont know what they charge for it, but I think its simple shipping and handling. Scroll down on that SP2 link above until you see 'order the cd'.

Re: Affiliate.Com

I sent Jarhead a PM today regarding his computer problems and absence from the board. Just got this response from him:

Download and run the file. I hope to god you have a broadband connection and not dialup.

Sounds to me like you have a corrupted file associated with internet exploder. Either the 'repair' from the original CD or the reapplication of SP2 should overwrite the bad file and get you going again.

Or yeah, downloading firefox browser and installing and using that probably will fix the problem unless the faulty file is something IE and firefox share use of.

Cute n Fuzzy, Well here is an update on my problem. I ordered the SP 2 cd as you recommended and loaded it out today. Didn't clear up by browser problem though so I went ahead and downloaded FireFox and that corrected my problem. No more bringing the program down when I click on another link. FireFox browser seems to mover faster too. I like what I see so far. Thanks for your help!

Re: Affiliate.Com

Sorry that original idea didnt work out. Probably needs a full reinstall of XP. Without re-reading the whole thread you might also have a bad browser hijacker or some similar spyware.

Either way, firefox solves a lot of IE problems. You'll note that some sites render slightly differently but are functionally similar. My insurance company's web site doesnt work with FF if you want to log into your account. Other than that, its good.

Have you tried the 'tabbed browsing' yet? Click on 'file' and then 'new tab'. You'll see a second 'file folder tab' appear near the top of the screen with its own browser session inside. I have all the stuff I read regularly in its own tab, saved with 'tools/options/general/home page use current open pages'. Open firefox, go get a refresh on your cup of coffee, and all your sites will be open and ready to read.

Look into the firefox extensions (aka plugins) via 'tools/extensions/get more extensions'. You can customize the browser with any of hundreds of plug ins that get rid of ads, aggregate news information, etc.
