I have two computers. One has Windows 98 and the other is a laptop with Windows XP. I would like to get rid of Internet explorer. I would rather open my pictures with window's explorer. It works much better. Internet Explorer will hesitate when opening pictures. I have to hit control alt delete to get it to work. After opening several pictures it will just sit there with an hour glass! Please help!

First, you cannot delete IE without doing serious damage to your operating systems, since IE is a part of Windows. Additionally, some webpages only work with IE, such as MS update pages.
Second, if you are wondering about viewing pictures already downloaded on your hard drive, you can right click on any of the picture files and change the program that opens them (be sure to make the change universal).
See the instructions here:

Hope this helps,
