    Good morning all,
    I kind of added the beginning of this on the Internet Explorer refresh thread, This is what happens: Start>settings>cp>add/remove programs, page loads and freezes, need to reboot. Intermittent but more often than not. Do you think I should try getting into it in Safe Mode or maybe do a repair with the W2k pro discs? Doesn't matter how I get into Contro Panel, the same thing usually happens. If you need more specs from me, I'll find them, desk is a mess, sorry.
    As usual thanks in advance.

    Not well up on 2k issues apart from the small bit I see of it in work, but this could help


    dis you update IE around the time this started happening? just curious as what I have read is that updating to IE6 can cause this to happen on w2k and reinstalling IE can fix the problem.

    Thanks halo,
    I don't remember, if I did or not but can certainly try reinstalling IE6 first. I don't use IE as a browser anymore because it freezes constantly. Should I just use the copy I have to reinstall or download a new copy?
    Thanks :)

    both ways will be ok BUT I personally would download a new file as who knows yours could have been corrupt in the first place!
