ok, I tried repairing the ie; it's a little better, but still some problems;

Should I uninstall IE and then reinstall version 5.5 instead of 6? I'm not sure. some say with win 98 se you shouldn't have ie 6? If I should uninstall, I'm not sure what happens if I uninstall first (won't that leave me with nothing??) then how would I go on line and reinstall? and should I reinstall 6?

I have windows 98 second edition. I keep it pretty "clean"; Mcafee anti virus, firewall, I use adware, regularly, spybot, cw shredder, and a squared (maybe one of these is the problem?)

My I.E. has been getting worse daily and now worse by the minute! I can only go to one website, if I'm lucky, then it freezes and I have to reboot. And it's very, very slow, (and my connection is high speed cable modem) I called my provider, it's not them.

help! it isn't really recommended to uninstall IE because it is bundled into the Operating System. I think you should post a HijackThis log into the HjT logs and Analysis forum here. Here is a tutotial about how to post a HijackThis log.
