        Uhm. I'm starting to get confused.. you installed IE and Outlook,
and then put in a network card, and then had to format your system.  You
just made a copy of everything...removed the card, put it all back, and
then....saw problems (assuming the network card still isn't in there), and
then installed IE and Outlook, again, and had some minor problems (listed

        So, no network card, restored from backup after format,
re-installed ie and outlook (assuming they were on the backup disk). The
mud ran after you installed. No listed reason for doing any of this, but
it was done all the same.

        I'm assuming you i have no idea what you're talking
about.  You're a very confusing individual.  You can't "change disks" ?
You mean, run an application from one hard drive while having your current
working directory on another harddrive?  That's simple, just reference the
application with the full path.

Ex: d:\temp> c:\program files\my apps\myapp.exe
        >runs myapp.exe<

        1. Yes.  Why couldn't they be?
        2. Yes.  Why couldn't they be?

        Note: i'm not making fun of you.  It's just that there are alot of
problems with this message.  The english is not the best, but the
references are vague enough that when coupled with the bad english , they
are unreadable.  Aside from that, there are real questions as to what
you're trying to do, and what errors you have seen, and what looks like
large sections of procedures you've performed which have been simply left

        We need a better starting point to even begin to question what
your situation is.  Please write with more information, such as specific
errors, especially those that prompted you to format your disk, and assume
that IE and Outlook were causing problems, as well those concerning a
network card which seems to float in and out of the story with no apparent
