Will reinstalling Windows (due to Ybrowser errors) delete anything important
like address books, e-mails, printer drivers, and most importantly, DSL
software?

Thanks in advance,

Shannon

It would be better though for you to fix the errors you are having than to
reinstall Win Me over itself. I you do decide to reinstall Win Me then it
is ESSENTIAL that you first uninstall Internet Explorer 6, if installed,
and rename the file wmploc.dll to wmploc.old if you have Windows Media
Player 9 installed.

You may also want to have a look at Rob McGregor's notes on reinstalling
Win me which can be found on Noel Paton's site at

Are you running either (or both) of the Yahoo Messenger system or the Yahoo
Toolbar?? I had problems with both of them with WinME.

Just a thought......Heather

I don't use Yahoo's browser and not knowing what your problems in using it
might be it's probably best for me to say no. However if you were to
provide details of your problems then maybe I could help you and if not
I'm sure that someone else will be able to help you.
