  • Encoding acting up.....

    IE started asking me to install Hebrew for certain web pages, but it is
    already installed. I click Cancel and sometimes it comes out OK and sometimes
    not (e.g., backwards, gibberish, etc.), and I have to start playing with
    Encoding. Now I see that the Default encoding setting in the International Read Settings--Hebrew (Windows)--is grayed out! How can I get it back, and why did the computer suddenly start thinking I don't have Hebrew installed? Never had any trouble before.

      1. Sorry for delay in reply. I did not receive notification that someone had posted a reply.

      2. I would upgrade to 7 if there is an easy way to do it which I could be assured would not mess with any of my IE and OE settings/data.

      3. IE 8 is not an option.

      4. Since IE 6 has always worked fine with Hebrew, I would simply like to set it back to the settings which allowed it to do so in the past. I have obviously changed something somewhere along the way which needs to be changed back. System restore is not an option, as many needed changes (addition of new software)have been made which I wish to retain.

      Thanks for any help.

        Windows Update, or downloading the installer from Microsoft.

        In any case, if your data is that important to you, you will already have backups in place...

          If I remember correctly, neither Windows Update nor the installer from MS give info regarding the difference between updating as opposed to installing, or info regarding transferring settings and data. If I am in error here, please send exact address of this information.

          In any case, the easiest and fastest solution would be to return to my Hebrew-reading IE6. Anyone who knows about the reason for the grayed out field (see original post) and setting IE and OE for an English interface which is Hebrew-enabled would be greatly appreciated.

          Thanks.
