 Keith,

 What happens when you open a command prompt window and type:

yum list installed

? You should get a list of installed components (goes by fast!). You can also get the 'Testlog' utility from ArcaNoae, run it and in the testlog file created will be a list of YUM installed components. This will at least tell you whether or not YUM itself is working.

 If it is OK, then you could try deleting C:\OS2\ANPM.INI ... it will be created on the next startup. Maybe corruption there is hanging things up...

Regards,

Keith Marjerison

Thank you David

That did it, I outputted the yum list install>yumlstinst.lst and there were a lot of entries.
Deleting ANPM.ini and rebooting got it working again. I installed a bunch of missing packages for firefox and now I'm back on the internet with firefox45.9.0 daily.
Thank you all for your help and input.
Don't know what deleting the old etc, usr and var did to my system, but I should be able to reinstall anything that is not working.
Thanks again. :)
