I.E 5.O problems

By quinncy665 ·
Hi,
System:I.E 5.0,Win 2K Srv Pack 3.

Why is it that sometimes when I try to logon to Internet Connection(click e icon or goto CtrL Panel), the P.C will hang & I need to restart the P.C ,then I can logon to the Net??i.e .the mouse & screen will stall when I click the icon(4 Internet) or open the window for Network Connection, the very 1st time?

ii)Also, there is always this advertisement banner (www.gohip.com) that keep popping up everytime I launched a I.E sie,it quite cumbersome cos U hav 2 shut it down for easy viewing?Do I have to change anything or can use Mcfaee Security Sys Firewall Feature?that Helps?
iii)Finally,since I.E 5.0 is a pretty old version, is it advisable to upgrade to 5.5,but I can't find I.E 5.5 software site 4 downloading on the Net, only I.E 5.5 w Srv Pack 2?or remain as I.E 5.0 as it is deemed to be more stable & less flawed than I.E 6.0?

Regards,
Quinn

Scan your system with Norton 2002, your IE5.0 might be corrupt. Reinstall IE5.0, if you can't find 5.5 stick with 5.0. Just a precaution, don't go for IE 6.0.

Regarding the advertisements, download Ad-Aware from http://www.lavasoftusa.com/

Regarding the other issues, I would recommend upgrading IE. If you don't want to go to 6, then 5.5 sp2 is certainly a significant step up from 5.0.

If the issue persists at that point, I'd do basic system maintenance/trooubleshooting. I'm willing to bet Ad-Aware and an upgrade will fix you right up.

Good luck, hope this helps!

Internet explorer 5.5 can be found at microsoft's site.

Go to downloads and do a Keyword Search for Internet Explorer 5.5
OS: Windows 2000
Show results for: All Downloads

If you only have the last 12 months in the show results for... you will not pickup the program; just patches.

The search results in a link for Internet Explorer 5.5 Service Pack 2 and Internet Tools. The file you will download through this link is 17 MB and it will run the setup for IE 5.5 (you do get the whole 5.5 program through this link).

DO upgrade to 5.5... don't upgrade to 6.0 with Windows 2000 (6.0 seems to work best with WinXP than 2000 for some reason).
