I have no desire to start anything ;-), or to get totally OT, but what you
have heard is entirely true! I spent most of yesterday trying to restore a
machine at work to functional IE5, after some silly idiot had put AOL's
browser on it, and it was nigh impossible; I think I _am_ in fact going to
have to reinstall IE; something very strange has happened to it (as though
IE and the dial-up have become completely divorced). So 1) if anyone else
has done this and can tell me what exactly I need to do, I'll be very
grateful, and 2) if there's any way you can not install the browser, I'd
advise you to take it!
