IE 6 destroyed FREE CELL Game

Question

A few days ago I installed Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 because I kept getting the message that I should install the latest security update, but could not do so until the above mentioned was installed. Installing it destroyed my "Free Cell" game. The game board is incomplete, and it freezes if you try to play. I did not print directions for uninstalling the service pack. Actually I should have known not to download this, as when IE6 first was available I downloaded it and had the same problem. At that time I did uninstall it. Can you tell me either how to recover the game without unistalling the service pack, or whether I could uninstall it? And if I don't have IE6 is the Security Update March 7 necessary?

Thanks,

Judy Hearn

This question was answered on November 1, 2002. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

If you have your original operating system disk it may be easier to do a repair installation since Free Cell Game comes with the Operating System software

Insert the Original Windows 98 CD and select "repair installation" NOT NEW INSTALL The corrupt files can be rewritten by the disk or CD and should fix your game While leaving the IE 6 update intack.

If you want to delete the IE 6 upgrade go to the control panal and click ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS Select the IE program you wish to uninstall Good Luck!
