Reinstall IExplorer

By Casemaker ·
Hi,
My client ordered cable modem broadband. The tech came out and installed the modem using usb connection. It never worked. They tried all kinds of things including reinstall W98se. It never worked. Now when I try to use dial up it will dial up and connect, but when I try and open Internet Explorer it tells me Internet Explorer could not open the search page. will a reinstall solve this. If it will what is the best way to do this?

Most likely when they put in the cable modem, they changed your IE settings to connect via LAN. You need to change your configuration, not reinstall. In fact, unless you totally **** IE away (with something like IEradicator) reinstalling will likelynot help (as the reinstall will pick up your old configuration settings).

Good luck...hope this helps.

Tech would have reset the home page in IE, see if it is the home page you are looking for. The other possibilities were already mentioned.

Use ie TOOLS>INTERNET OPTIONS should bring you up on the GENERAL tab and default HOME PAGE.
