Hi hpg3, Although Microsoft has designed Internet Explorer to seamlessly display your existing favorites whenever you switch to a newer version, data loss and errors can happen during an upgrade. For that reason, you should always back up your favorites to an external storage device before upgrading IE.
I hope that answers your question !!
Thanks for getting back with me. Tried what you suggested, it seems to lock up on the dell screen with the progress bar full and goes no further. If you can think of anything else please let me know. As always I appreciate all your help.
With nothing running, I looked at the start manager, and the CPU Usage keeps bouncing between 50 to 80 % usage. Shows taskhost.exe using almost 70 K . shows host process for windows.
What is this ? iexplore.exe shows 125 K. this shows internet.
