I know that on a 98 system you can rename the file with no adverse
effects - the one we did it to is running IE v5.5, Access 97 &
QuickBooks 2002 just fine.
However, if you do this on a WinXP system, you'd first have to deal with
the dllcache file (which I don't suggest you do) and then the system32
file - which I also don't suggest you do - because you will BSOD your
computer when you try to reboot...

What's the verdict on this one?
-- May God Bless you and everything you touch. My "foundation" verse: Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. _______________________________________________ Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
