Hi, everything's been going fine with IE 3.0 until I got the brainless idea of installing the RealPlayer 4.0 Beta.  After I finished installing it, I tried to open IE, and it just freezes on loading plugins.... So, I deleted every reference to Real Player, and tried again.  Still the same freeze (I can force quit by the way).  I thought huh, so I deleted every Explorer thing and reinstalled explorer, never even touching RealPlayer again, and still the big freeze. I say huh, huh....So I reinstall my system 7.5.5 update then reinstall ie30 and still the same freeze...What gives.  I don't think it is a problem with any other extension, because it worked fine before.  So there you have it....
thanks

Be careful with MS software on Macs -- they embed numerous files everywhere and are difficult to trace and delete.

I don't know the simple answer to this particular question, but here's how to find it...

First, check System Folder | Startup Items, and delete any items placed there by Real Whatever 4.0 Beta. Nothing there? Then...

Restart with System 7.5.5 extensions only. (Apple Menu | Control Panels | Extensions Manager | Sets pulldown.)

Keep using Extensions Manager to add extensions one at a time, restarting between each addition.

Obviously, you need to add those needed by Microsoft Internet Explorer. You can track these down and add them all at once by examining the non-System 7.5.5 extensions using Get Info (highlight an extension, then keys Command-I). If the author is Microsoft, and Internet Explorer is the only Microsoft software you use on the machine, the extension should probably be added.

Once you get those added, and restart, try running Internet Explorer.

Tedious, I realize, but an effective means of isolating extension conflicts

Eventually, I would try Netscape Navigator 3.01. I've used both browsers, and Netscape seems better on a Mac to me.

Good Luck!
