rojanack, If you go into your Control Panel>Add/Remove programs, scroll down to Microsoft Internet Explorer, hilite it and click the Remove button which should give you 3 options, choose the Repair Option and it should repair IE and hopefully correct the problem.
I volunteer in the computer room at a senior center. I recently installed a program called "Professor teaches Internet Explorer 6", which I thought I could use to help the seniors become familiar with it. The computer has Win 98 and IE 6 SP1. Now, when we open IE, there is no Title Bar, no Menu Bar, no Address Bar at the top of the screen, and no Status Bar/Task Bar at the bottom of the screen. We do see the bar at the top that lets you go backward and forward, but it looks a little different than it did before. It almost makes me think we're running Win XP, but the program was copyrighted in 2001, and I don't know if XP was around then.
The strange thing is, though, once in a while, we do get the older view that we had before, complete with all the bars.
I thought perhaps the bars were being hidden and tried hovering the mouse pointer at the edges of the screen, but no luck.
We also often get an error: IEXPLORE has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. IEXPLORE caused an invalid page fault in module KERNEL32.DLL at 015f:bff7b2e5.
I'd appreciate advice on how I can go about getting IE back to normal. I've thought of uninstalling the program, but it does do a good job of explaining the software, and I would like to keep it if I can.
