Repairing Internet Explorer
By Stephen Bucaro
Because the Windows operating system relies on many components of Internet Explorer,
any problems with Internet Explorer can affect other areas of the system. One possible
source of a problem can be an Internet Explorer add-on. Add-ons are apps that you
install or "plug-in" to Internet Explorer to allow it to work with content like videos and games.
You can disable add-ons in by selecting Manage add-ons in Internet Explorer's
Tools menu. In the Manage add-ons window that appears, in the left
panel click on "Toolbars and Extensions", then in the right panel click on the name of
an add-on. Information about the add-on will appear in the bottom panel, along with
a [Disable] button.
If you're getting the message "Internet Explorer Cannot Start", you can access the
Manage add-ons dialog box through the "Internet Options" link in Control Panel.
In the Internet Properties dialog box that appears, click on the Programs
tab. Then on the Programs page, click on the [Manage add-ons] button. The
Manage add-ons window described above will appear.
A reader from Rockster, Illinois says, "... The book has great tips for optimum configuration, diagnosing problems, setting security,
disaster recovery, common annoyances and how to get around them. This is a great reference book
that the beginner or advance PC user will want to keep handy. There is so much information in this
book that even the die hard computer geek who thinks he/she knows everything about computers
should find something here that they didn't know and can put to good use."
