I'm using OS9.2 and Explorer 5.1. At some point Explorer froze and I had to reboot. When I returned, I couldn't connect to the Internet anymore by clicking directly on the program. The only way I could accomplish this was first to go into Remote Access, which would make the internet connection, and then click open the Explorer program. Even when I installed a completely new version of the Explorer program, thinking that maybe a file had been corrupted, it still won't let me connect to the Internet from the program itself. I have tried with OSX as well, but I get the same problem.
Oddly, I have a similar problem with Word 98. I can't open a text file directly, only when I open the program first.
How can I fix this?
