If you click on a link to open another browser window, but nothing happens, it may be that one or more Internet Explorer files have become corrupt or damaged. If Internet Explorer 5 was installed as part of Windows 98, you can use the System File Checker feature to repair the application. Click Start, then select Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and System Information. From the Tools menu, select the System File Checker. If IE5 was installed separately from Windows, open the Control Panel, double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon, and locate Internet Explorer in the programs list. If you highlight it and click Remove, you should be given the choice to repair the installation instead of deleting it.
