I have downloaded ie6, when i tried to install it came up with "unable to complete install please run set up again" when i try to do this i get the message " previous install requires a reboot" and so a never ending circle starts. I am running win98. Also i now cannot click on a link on any page as all that happens is a blank page comes up.
There are also a lot of " page not available" messages when i try to access websites (such as google)
Have any of you wonderful people got any ideas ?

Best start again. What options have you got in add/remove/ie/delete... can you revert to previous or repair?

Get a PC Advisor cover disk with I.E.6 on it.
Add/Remove old I.E. Then install new from disk.
If you are running Naviscope,, disable it when trying new I.E.6 and see if that works.

MichellC,
I have tried both options but still no joy.
Tradec,
I cannot delete as it is not in Add/Remove progs.
As you can see, I am somewhat Baffled by it all, but thanks for your suggestions. (Any More ???)

An awful lot of people have problems with IE6 on Windows 98, I did when I ran 98, and had to revert to IE5.5. Some people have NO trouble at all. If you are getting trouble, it is best to revert to 5.5 or 5. Or try this.

To repair the Internet Explorer, you can always try the long way round? START/ PROGRAMS/ ACCESSORIES/ SYSTEM TOOLS/ SYSTEM INFORMATION/ TOOLS/ INTERNET EXPLORER REPAIR TOOL. Click the second item in the list.


But I agree with Andsome, 5.5 does work better with 98+ (and w2k in some cases).

You could always purchase the November 2003 issue of
PC PRO magazine and install Mozilla version 1.4 from the cover disc.

Thanks everybody, You are just great, It helps a "computer virgin" like myself to sort out problems that normally I would have to pay through the nose to have sorted.
