EDIT: Never mind, I managed to install Firefox.

I am trying to launch Internet Explorer on Windows 98. I know that my internet connection is already working fine because I can ping google through the MS-DOS prompt. However, my computer insists on launching the MSN Internet setup every time I try to launch Internet explorer, and if I try to exit the MSN Setup, internet explorer also exits. How do I remove or bypass the MSN setup?

If you still want to know how to get around this just go to control panel and find internet options and go to the connections tab and click setup and set it up for a lan connection. :thumbsup:
