When I try to adjust the size of the temporary internet file by moving the slider under tools, general, settings, I get a message to enter a file size between 1 and 0 when I try to adjust my settings. I don't seem to have a file available to save temporary internet files, and no file is listed where it says "current location".  I also notice that I don't seem to be able to use Windows update.  I have tried reloading the browser and the problems persist.

Run virus scan program and try again.
If that doesn't work goto add/remove programs and uninstall IE5, you will only be give an option to remove ie5 and go back to ie4. Download a new copy of ie5, if possible, and reinstall.

You should have a C:\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

Do you?

Insert your Win98 Installation CD and run the "install.exe". It will renew all your system files, but it will not trash your programs and costumizations :-)

I do have a C:\Windows\Temporary Internet Files. I can't figure out why it isn't listed as my Current Location as discussed above. Any ideas?

I ran virus scan-no problems detected

My history folder doesn't seem to be working either.

I've reinstalled Windows twice and IE5 from the CD three times.

When I look in my Temporary Internet Files Folder, I see some cookies in there, but nothing else.

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

leonardt,

you've probably go IE 5.0 installed.  You should download the newest version, 5.01 from Microsoft.  5.0 has had alot of different problems and I've found that 5.01 has corrected many of these.  Download it at http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/iebuild/ie501_win32/en/ie501_win32.htm?FinishURL=%2Fdownloads%2Frelease%2Easp%3FReleaseID%3D15568%26redirect%3Dno

I think that should probably do it!

I'm not having any luck with the download link for IE5.01 I keep getting a message that the sight cannot be found after i start the download.  I don't know if this is a Microsoft problem or my own.

Go to

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/search.asp?

in the "Product Name" select box, choose "Internet Explorer 5.01" and click "Find it".  This will return a table back to you, click on "Internet Explorer 5.01"...this should be the second row in the table.  After that, its just a matter of following the screen instructions.

Let me know if this helps!

Microsoft won't let me go to the page because of unusually high traffic. I guess I'll have to try later. If it works I'll let you know and give you the credit for the solution.

I appreciate the help and accepted your answer even though I did a clean install of win 98 and the problem resolved itself.  Now I'm off to reload everything.
