This sounds crazy - -but. Have you downloaded the IE6 update Q818529 from the MS site?This is supposed to be a security patch

I did this and found I couldn`t download a nero update. I have removed this patch and now everything is fine. You can see this patch if you go as if to add/remove a programme from settings.

I have not replaced this patch and things are much happier now with my PC. You can always give it a try and if it doesn`t work download the patch again or can you?

Thanks Charles for the advice which I took but Checked in Programs and also in Search but Alas nothing doing so must wait until someone else has had the message before Bill

Hi, I assume this is XP?

OK well I have just been looking in my "Big XP Book" . It says that you can get this happen as you described if you don`t have Administrative privileges. Have you got those set for yourself?

I hope that helps

Thanks Charles , Yes it is set to me be Administrator, and I have uninstalled but when I reloaded it came up again as the DAP wouldn`t let me in so now I guess I will have to forget all about ,as I had it installed before I went on to Broadband , Any way once again Thank You for your Help Bill
