Hi there

I have been using our other home computer and noticed that all pictures on web pages in IE are really bad quality. At first I thought it was the graphics card but I installed Firefox and the images look great in that. The machine is running XP pro and is fully updated. Is it possible something didn't install properly? I if I need to remove and re-install IE how do I do that?

If you need to reinstall or repair IE see How to reinstall or repair Internet Explorer and Outlook Express in Windows XP.

The first thing to try is to go to Start>Run and type in sfc /scannow. This will have XP examine its own files for corruption or missing ones. You may need your XP CD during this process. If you do this be sure to go to Windows update after its done as some files may revert back to their original version.

Just another very good reason to abandon IE and make Firefox your default browser. That way, even if you can get IE fixed or not, you have a better browser, and you can keep IE for Windows updates.
