Hi, I did the stupid and unchecked the "COMMUNICATIONS" box in Windows Components and now cannot connect to the Internet, via my ATT modem. Called ATT free support and because I'm receiving a Microsoft notification, yah know the one that requires you to respond by selecting "SEND" or "DON'T SEND" the operating system error to MS, they recommended I call in the ATT home service team, or the Geek Squad and then I found you folks! I have a 10 year old computer, stop laughing, utilizing Windows 98SE. My first thought was just insert the original WIN98SE disk to reload the files, but forgot to realize that only IE5 would be reloaded. My next step was to download the IE6SETUP.EXE file, from my work computer. I downloaded the file and things seemd to be going OK, until I had to select the intall option, typical, or selected files. If I select either I receive the "IE6WZD" error and can't proceed further. The computer seems to work OK except for not being able to connect to the internet. I have downloaded the IE6SETUP.EXE from another computer and loaded it onto my Internet disabled computers desktop, but when I try to run the installation wizard it only goes so far and then gives me the error message IE6WZD. If I run in Safe Mode, I can get through the process OK but it then tells me that "The most recent versions of all items are already installed. It is recommended that you exit Setup without reinstaling." If I try to sign-on to SBC Yahoo from the Safe Mode I do not receive the error message, but after attempting to "Sign In" a box opens stating, "Unable to connect to the server, Please check your connections before trying again." I realize that once I gain acces to the Internet I will have to run the Windows update funtion to download the additional updated files. I believe that my SBC equipment is working OK, after talking with the tech support people at SBC Yahoo. They were concerned about having the four lights lit on their Seimens Speadstream 4100 modem. I hope this information helps create a good picture for this issue I'm dealing with.
Bye for now, Rob (Cleveland, OH)
