I don't know if it's the same in W2000, but in XP Add/remove programs/add /remove windows components click on IE and follow instructions. You could look to see if it's the same.

using mozilla for now, i'm sure i'll get used to it.

i'm afraid the other suggestions had no effect.

any more ideas would be welcomed
