constantly having to repair internet explorer

  haggis ok 15:25 27 Feb 2004

I seem to constantly have to repair internet explorer,why does it keep breaking down,I usually have to delete cookies and temp internet files then use the repair tool,and even this isn't failsafe.In the temp internet folder I keep finding the file ~df48f.temp,sometimes it wont delete and says its in use, other times it deletes ok,but whenever its there it seems troubles not far away.Using win 98,1100mhz pc,any help much appreciated.

I tried the program vog recommended,that seems fine but I still have the same problem, I ran the cleanup program,deleted temp internet files and cookies,and used the internet repair tool,dialed up and still got the page cannot be displayed message?Im useing the kerio firewall and antivir personal edition,sometimes everthings fine other times nothing seems to work,I can dial up and get the first few webpages i select and the for no apparent reason it gives up on me and I get the peskey cannot be displayed message,also sometimes the detect network settings is greyed out and does't work,this is one of thoughs arrrgh problems
