Paul -
Cheers! You included the entire script!

Now the bad news - you may do better posting to the VBScript group since
that's an internal error to VBS. Here's how to find what one of those errors
means, though.  If you are not comfortable with VBS this may not do you a
lot of good, but hang on to it; trust me, you WILL want to read it in a few
weeks; this is a fishing lesson.

BTW, "80072020" is what Microsoft calls an "LDAP for ADSI" error.  It is
apparently a two-part hexadecimal error number; that may not mean anything
to you now, but you will be worried about it later :) - good luck.


1. Error 29 and Internet Explorer Script error

We are able to use the computer since we installed
Netscape.  We've used Internet Explorer for years and are
currently using  Internet Explorer 5.0.  The cursor will
not work so that we can type anything such as a search bar
or passwords.  We are unable to load a newer version onto
the computer including 8.0 with a disk.  The error that we
are getting says Error 29 in a small box and right behind
it is a larger box saying there is an Internet Explorer
script error.  Any ideas???  We have Windows 2000.
