Microsoft is expected to ship Internet Explorer 3.0 by the end of August, but the company is still working on solving glitches in the newest beta version of the software, including installation problems that affect other applications and the underlying operating system, Windows 95 or Windows NT.

Among known issues, Microsoft has posted on its Web site that Internet Explorer 3.0 running on Windows 95 installs an updated version of the Windows system .DLL file that causes toolbar buttons to be drawn as disabled in some utilities, including the ActiveX Control Pad, Wordpad and Paintbrush.

Another problem affects Iomega Zip Disk Tools for Windows 95, and similar problems exist with other common .DLL files. Microsoft says the problems will be fixed in the final release of the browser.
