Is your root filesystem NTFS or FAT32? If it's NTFS, get the NTFS boot floppy and delete the Content.ie5 directory from the command line. If it's FAT32, use a Windows 98 boot floppy to do the same thing.

My first reply included a direct link to the floppy download in the body of the message -- and, no, IE does not need to be reinstalled. The directories under content.ie5 are recreated automagically the next time that you run the program.

I have the same problem, how can I scan the drive c: in DOS mode? I type commands like dir, keyb, and it doesn't work. I think there's something that escapes to me, but i'm very stressed for this for days ago and now my mind is overlocked!

Oh sorry, now i found the solution... The thing i was trying to do was delete a .htm file that was unable to do, for this i downloaded Killdisk,but it only worked for scan or delete ALL the disk, and i was looking for delete one file only, but at least, i found the program UNLOCKER, it was great!

Thank you for your attention, this is a great forum with nice people!
