Sounds like IE is fuggered

I hate to say this but being on Win 98 your missing out on so much, why not use this as an excuse to upgrade to XP (or treat yourself to a new pc)

Otherwise id just download firefox webbrowser which is better on 9/10 websites (the ones that dont use active x) :S

http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/ (have a freind download it if necessary)

Backup the data and reinstall 98, or try a recovery reinstall

Doesnt the compatability mode thing in XP work with this app (then again it doesnt work with most apps ive tried!)

Before going to the extremes of reinstalling '98 a lot of nasties mess up IE, so as suggested download firefox and run through all the Antivrus/trojan progs etc.
