As far as I can tell, installing MSIE 4.0 is a big mistake.
It caused my system to crash every hour or two.  I finally 
had to uninstall it to get my life back to some normality.  
I think I made a big mistake in responding yes to the 
question of whether I wanted the desktop installed or 
whatever the question was.  I didn't try installing just 
the browser (which is what I should have done), I didn't 
realize the implications of installing the desktop component.

On the uninstall I got a bit of a scare when it didn't reboot,
but I managed to get it going again after playing around with 
it a little (don't remember exactly what I did to recover - 
maybe had to boot in safe mode).

MSIE 4.0 is EVIL!    :)
