ATTN: Drkspy please elabarate on previous post

I am having the same problem in IE in which a new window will not open with the exact symtoms.  Please explain in more detail the fix for this.  I tried to change explorer.exe but since it is used win98 doesn't let me change it.  Also, is there another way instead of using IEradicate?  I have heard that even if I reinstall IE it is not associated with Windows anymore.

Does this seem like the problem you are having.

You Cannot Open New Internet Explorer Window or Nothing Happens After You Click a Link
http://support.microsoft.com/search/preview.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;281679

Basically what it says in that link is this

1 Quit all programs that are running.
2 Click Start, and then click Run.
3 Type regsvr32 /i urlmon.dll, and then click OK.
4 When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded" message, click OK.

If this does not resolve the problem, repeat steps 2 through 4 for each of the following files (in step 3, replace Urlmon.dll with each of the file names below):

Shdocvw.dll
Msjava.dll
Actxprxy.dll
Oleaut32.dll
Mshtml.dll
Browseui.dll
Shell32.dll

Drcspy -

I appreciate your effort but if you read my question I asked to elaborate on your previous post.  You gave me a url back to the same post I asked you to elaborate on.

Also I asked how to change explorer.exe which was unanswered. I get a "Cannot rename explorer: The specified file is being used by windows" error.

You have to change from the Win98 floppy boot disk.

At the prompt you would do this

ren c:\Windows\explorer.exe explorer.ex_
