That's weird Sandra. I have used system restore since I downloaded IE6 and it worked. Sometimes it is disabled at startup and you have to goto msconfig to put it back.

SORTED!!!!
 Found ie5.setup.exe on Ddrive. When I used that instead of version on CD, it let me overwrite all but one of the files in boldprint.

Its amazing how these silly problems make you so determined to sort them. They make you so angry and annoyed, and determined not to be beaten by them. Well that's how it works for me, but then there's always the hammer ;)

Can anyone explain why,if it was an IE fault,the stuff on drive D worked ok  ???
Shouldnt an IE problem affecting the boot drive also have a similar efect on the second drive  :-";"xx

Could it be that IE is a separate installation on D: Drive?

Well I've found IE defies all logic when it comes to creating problems, I've had so many problems with IE and Explorer, and something that seems detached from the problem solves it. Either that or I'm fik ::)
