Internet Explorer gone screwy

I am running Windows 98 - Special Edition with Office 2000 Premium and Internet Explorer 5. This systems was probably not installed more than two weeks ago. And for the last two weeks everything has been working great.

However suddenly during operation Internet Explorer went screwy. 99% of everything works except when I hit the down arrow to display all my recent addresses I've been too. It just locks up my Internet Explorer everytime and I have to CRTL+ALT+DEL it. I have done a refresh install on 98 but to no avail. This does NOT happen on the normal Windows Explorer when selected the arrow for the drop down menu. It shows disk drives and what not just fine. Why only IE?

Also as soon as I type a web address into the Windows Explorer portion instead after loading one page I hit the down arrow and it starts again.

Djamon,

Try using the Internet Explorer Repair Tool.  Goto the link below, which will give detailed instructions on how to go about doing this.  Tell me how it goes.

It could be a broken link in your history. Try this : Tools/internet options On the General tab click Clear history and click delete temporary files. Now close browser and re-open browser and try again.

I actually tried your theory rockwolf before you mentioned it just after I posted at it worked. But for having the right answer anyway you can still have the points.
