When you are installing Internet Explorer, your computer may stop responding (hang) after the first reboot.


This problem occurs if CD-QuickShare is installed on the computer. When the Internet Explorer installation program tries to finalize settings after the first reboot, the CD-QuickShare drivers that load from the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files cause the computer to hang.


To finish installing Internet Explorer, follow these steps:

  1. Restart the computer. When you see the "Starting Windows 95" message, press the F8 key, and then choose Step-By-Step Confirmation from the Startup menu.
  2. Press Y at each prompt except for the "Process your startup device drivers (Config.sys)" and "Process your startup command file (Autoexec.bat)" prompts.
  3. Allow the Internet Explorer installation process to proceed normally.

After Internet Explorer is installed, it should function properly.


For additional information about this issue, contact Stac Electronics, the manufacturer of CD-QuickShare.

CD-QuickShare is manufactured by a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
