I'm no longer able to access the net through the normal
shortcut - the program hangs, and the 'not responding' box
comes up on exit. I believe it's a winsock problem.

If I load outlook express from the taskbar, and then open
a site from within (any) mail, then the net is available
in the normal way for the rest of that session, even when
OE is closed.

Any way to sort this without re-installing win2000?

any suggestions gratefully received!!

Since we don't know what the "normal" shortcut is, and it appears to
cause a problem, try using the "shortcut" in the Start, Programs menu.
If that works delete the "normal" shortcut and copy the one from the
start menu.

Have you tried removing Internet Explorer completely from
the system and re-installing ?

Thanks for taking the time to reply, no I was hoping
to "just do a quick fix" If I don't get anywhere, I will
re-install.
Thanks again

Thanks for taking the time to help, no, that shortcut
doesn't work any differently. I can always re-install the
program, I was just hoping for a quick fix!!

Can you find the programs EXE file and make a new shortcut to that?
