Once the XP Pro OS is installed the only browser available is IE which I was attempting to use to locate and download newer video drivers for the ATI AGP video card. I wasn't attempting to install anything using IE.
As stated before, system itself runs fine, other than IE constantly crashing. Forgot to mention before that I installed
a PCI network card to use as I don't have the LAN drivers for the motherboard any more. Guess I'll have to transfer and install from main PC the video drivers and newer version of browsers and see what happens.
