    Hi Tester,

    I understand what you mean with "But I don't want to back up my system with a program installed that is damaged".
    But at the other hand: why not make that back-up now?
    You can always make another back-up when you've fixed that IE-issue. Well, just a thought ;)

    I have it fixed now.I did think seriously about imaging without fixing IE6 though.
    When I get a few hours free time I'm going to image my program files.

    Jayzzz and Krusty.
    I followed advice from some friends and what I ultimately had to do was a registry value change (RegEdit)and d/l and install IE6 SP1 from MS.
    After that I had to go to add/remove programs>IE6 SP1 and when I clicked it, I got an option to repair IE6 and reboot.That fixed the problem.
    With that problem behind me I won't be worrying about a corrupt program in my backups. ;)

    Good work Tester! :) .
    I was about to tell that but I thought you already knew it how to fix IE on control panel/add/remove programs. Sorry if it gave you an extra headache. Good work anyway !

    Hi Krusty.

    I heard that IE6 could be fixed via add/remove programs feature.
    That only works with IE6 SP1.
    I "passed on" that Windows Update download so I had the original IE6 that was pre-installed on my computer.
    That made things more frustrating.

    Thanks Krusty.
    I had help though.I recieved some good guidance from a few well known experts,Tony Kline ,CNM and the crew at SWI.
