I have had to re-install windows XP and since am having all sorts of
problems. In the control panel I have 2 Networks (but both are the same)? I
only need 1 and can't get rid of the second one now. I can't connect to the
internet except via Mozilla's browser. I can't get my email or anything. I
can't install new software as it tells me my "vecter settings" need to be
changed...don't know where those are???
Any suggestions will be welcomed...thank you.

I am not telling you what to do, please wait for someone with more expertise,
but I had this same problem after I started using firefox. I also have
windows xp and I had IE 6.0 and firefox as my browsers. Once I removed
firefox, I haven't had any more problems with IE. I am also showing two
Networks, and I only have one. I have a dell dimension 4600

Thank you so much for responding...I feared no one would be out there to
help...lol. I have tried deleting Firefox off my system, but then nothing
will work on line, so I re-installed it. It's my only life line right now,
although very limited.

'Firefox' is just a browser, no email or news. You could add
'Thunderbird' for email. My preference is an integrated package like
'Mozilla 1.7.6' at the lower right of the page below. I am using 1.7.5
and can attest that it works very well for browsing, email and the news
groups. I have to use Outhouse Express at work and find it rude and
crude. I'll take netique aware Mozilla (Netscape) any day.

By the way in another post you said that you *deleted* Firefox from
your system. I hope you meant that you *un-installed* it. Just deleteing
the files leads to all kinds of problems.
