Yeah, i really dont want to reformat, but i cant get internet explorer to work at all and that runs all internet site on my computer, i tried netzero and aol, it wont open a website. This is my business computer and i have alot of important files i dont want to lose on it, is there anything i can do to get my internet back. I burned IE Version 6 on a disk and tried to download it on there but it says it doesnt have a proxy address or something like that, a error keeps occuring. I would really appreciate some sort of help. I cant do a system restore because its saying it was last in use 7/13/03, and it wont go past 2 years.

If IE is your only problem maybe just try using Firefox or Opera? THey will let you import Settings/Bookmarks from IE
