Okay, internet explorer along with opera and firefox works but then again doesent. Alot of sites including, ubi.com, thesims2.com, macromedia.com....etc. dont work, they say verious reasons y the page cannot be displayed. I think it has somethin to do with active x and also if i try playing raven shield it wont lemme connect to ubi.com or if i try to connect to the internet through this sims 2. I cant download flash or find somewhere to get it, is there a way i can get rid of ie cause the best part is i cant uninstall it or reinstall it

Cool "Internet Extortion..."

You can try to uninstall IE in the Add/remove Programs Control panel, and clicking the "Windows Setup" tab, and un-checking Internet Explorer. :question:

Here's a quick batch file that will completely remove IE's ability to access the internet and launch on your computer.

I've tested it on Win2k and WinXp with perfect results, but one person said they couldn't get IE back on XP after running this script. (Personally I think they're just stupid and didn't take the time to re-create the shortcuts). USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Anyway, here it is.

Disable IE Code:
Code:
@echo off 
C: 
cd "\Program Files\Internet Explorer" 
if not exist IEXPLORE.EXE goto End 
if exist IEXPLORE.EX_ del IEXPLORE.EX_ 
if not exist IEXPLORE.DIR md IEXPLORE.DIR 
if not exist IEXPLORE.DIR goto End 
attrib -r -h -s IEXPLORE.EXE 
ren IEXPLORE.EXE IEXPLORE.EX_ 
if exist IEXPLORE.EXE goto End 
ren IEXPLORE.DIR IEXPLORE.EXE 
echo IE disabled. 
echo If prompted, click "Cancel" then "Yes" on File Protection restore. 
echo Run enable-ie.bat to allow IE to run again. 
:End


Re-Enable IE Code:
Code:
@echo off 
C: 
cd "\Program Files\Internet Explorer" 
if not exist IEXPLORE.EX_ goto End 
if not exist IEXPLORE.EXE goto Activate 
attrib -r -h -s IEXPLORE.EXE 
rd IEXPLORE.EXE 
if exist IEXPLORE.EXE del IEXPLORE.EXE 
:Activate 
ren IEXPLORE.EX_ IEXPLORE.EXE 
echo IE enabled. 
:End


To create these batch files, paste this code into a new notepad document. Then save them as IEDISABLE.BAT and IEENABLE.BAT

Make sure to have the file type set to all files and not .txt
