If your Win98 computer is fully-patched at Windows Update, you already
have MSHTML.DLL v6.0.2800.1501 (or higher) installed.

First let me say that I mistyped and I still have IE6. I installed
AVG about 5-6 years ago. At that time I probably uninstalled Norton.
Thanks for your willingness to help.

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the

bought
it)?

When it hit control,alt,delete, it states that the page that is

IE7 or an even later version. Any help will be appreciated.

Did you check to see if the hot fix really applied?
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896156
I see nothing you have mentioned that calls for that hot fix.

Did you check if you already have the version 6.0.2800.1501 of
Mshtmled.dll?

Norton (and McAfee) applications are notorious for not uninstalling (or
upgrading) cleanly. Assuming it was a Norton 2003 (or newer) application:

1. Download the Norton Removal Tool, saving it to your desktop:
ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/englis...moval_Tool.exe

2. Close all open applications (i.e., anything with an icon on the taskbar).

3. Double-click on the file you saved in #1 above to run the utility. Don't
TOUCH your keyboard until the run completes, then reboot.

That's right. My own MSHTML.DLL got updated v.6.00.2800.1555. However,
that hotfix...

Internet Explorer 6 SP1 for Windows Millennium Edition and Windows 98

24-Mar-2005 17:32 6.0.2800.1501 434,688 Mshtmled.dll

...., & my own fully updated one is just v.6.00.2800.1106.
