IE5.5 browser broken?

By xanch ·
Got WindowsMe w/ IE5.5. Everytime I try to download stuff from the web the following wierd thing happens:
1)Select 'Save File as' instead of 'Open..'
2)The window that let's you select the file directory to save it doesn't appear but immediately commences the download box w/c shows documents flying between folders.
3)Strange part is that box doesn't show the '%complete' progress status.
4)Make matters worse is that the process aborts without warning and box disappears.

Is this strange orwhat? Do I have to set something in the borwser settings or just reinstall the borwser?

Thanks for any suggestion.

If this was an upgrade install over an existing windows and IE 5.0/5.5, you may well have a corrupted file somewhere. reinstall IE 5.5. If this was an direct 'virgin' install, some files may not have copied correctly - reinstall the program. You may want to go through Start/ControlPanel/AddRemove programs and uninstall the current Version of IE 5.5. This should remove any corrupted files or tell you cant remove it because of them. In either case reinstall the program to be sure you have no corrupted or missing files.
Hope this helps.
