I seem to have trashed my IE6
This just happened tonite after installing Yahoo Instant Messenger. When I click an external link from a site, I cannot get back. My back button is grayed out. I try opening the links in a new window and the same thing happens. I'm using Win XP Home, Service Pack 2. I thought there was an option somewhere to repair IE, but I sure can't find it.

1. Download and install Firefox, it's MUCH better!

2. Use the XP restore function to go back to a point where it was working
That should solve your problem. Just go back to the last restore point when your IE was working properly.

4. All fixed now
I just did a system restore and IE is back in business now. My little experience with Firefox last night was quite pleasant, and I may be dumping IE for good now. I've got to go back and reinstall it, because it disappeared during my system restore.

5. no repair option in XP
The repair option was part of the add and remove option accessed through control panel. Since IE is an integral part of XP that option no longer exists.

You have to snag the 6.0 upgrade download and then do a little registry hacking to repair.

Since you got it fixed no problem but just in case anyone is looking for the repair option. :-)
