Internet Explorer 5.0 BUG???

By seafitch ·
One of my users downloaded Internet Explorer 5.0 and installed it. The icon looks like a beetle and when he right clicks on the desktop he cannot create a new folder. Is this a virus or has he changed some other setting?

Thanks
Sarah

Sarah,

It sounds like they may have downloaded a corrupt file or something went wrong in the installation.

Try rebooting the machine first and if that doesn't fix anything, uninstall and reinstall the browser again.

Internet Explorer 5.0 has been pretty stable, but you do need to get the critical updates from Microsoft's site by going to the Tools menu and selecting Windows Update.

Good Luck!

Well, I guess you can call it a bug more or less. I think if you just remove the active desktop through the add/remove they should be fine.

Run your virus scan first,to detect in viruses that may be present.
Go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs,double click the icon,when the pane opens,locate IE5,highlight,then click the Remove button,click the Repair the installation,Microsoft does not let you unistall the browser.The other option would be to restore previous version of IE and then do the upgrade to 5.0 again.

The reason for the bettle look is cuz, the person uses desktop themes, if he changes the desktop theme it will look normal.

As for the IE5 problem, I recommend you to get it from some original Cd rather than download.

If you're using Win98 you can use the Internet Explorer Repair Tool. Got to system tools|system info. When that starts go to the tools menu and select the IE repair tool. It should be one of the first choices.
