Subject: sorry RE: ie4
Sorry to take up ads-l space with more of this this, but the internet
explorer warning came from my brother, whose system did crash after
removing ie4 from his W95 desktop. And he was NOT running Office, as was
suggested by E Morris.
He spoke with another relative (a Windows-relative, unlike my-mac-self) who
told him of other, similar problems with ie4, and told him how to fix his
The upshot--it did not totally "fry" his system as i suggested earlier, but
it IS about 10 hours later and he's still repairing the damage.
I think Jessie Emerson's point about installing ie4 as an individual
program rather than an integrated desktop is probably the sagest advice.
Again, sorry for this use of the list--maybe we should backchannel further
discussion about this.
