IE 5.5 and 6 - I also cannot start IE

Post by Rod » Wed, 04 Feb 2004 01:13:55


I was having occasional problems with 5.5 terminating. I
upgraded to IE6 plus all patches from the Windows update
service. I also updated W2K to SP4 plus all patches. The
problem with IE became worse. Now, instead of failing
sometimes, IE will not start. I immediately receive the
pop up window with the "IE has encountered a problem and
must close" message. I've clicked on the send error to
Microsoft but am not convinced the transmission occurs.
Here is some of the info (cut and paste not allowed so I've
typed some. I can send the full info via a WORD attachment):

1. Check if a program running in the background is interfering with Internet
Explorer. Temporarily disable all Norton programs, including anti-virus, win
doctor, recycle bin protect, and clean sweep. Disable any firewall or
ad-blocker.

2. Perform a repair of Internet Explorer. From Control Panel select
Add/Remove Programs. Scroll down to Microsoft Internet Explorer and
highlight it. Click on the Add/Remove button. When the IE Tools menu comes
up, select Repair. Click OK.

3. If repairing does not work, uninstall and reinstall IE. At the same IE
Tools menu, select "Restore the previous Windows configuration". Then
reinstall Internet Explore.

You can also access the IE Toolbar by clicking Start > Run and type

rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance

Rod,
From Control Panel> Internet Options> Advanced uncheck "Enable third party
browser extensions." That should allow IE to open.

Then...
Run CWShredder from http://www.yqcomputer.com/ 's been
the most helpful with this type of problem. CWShredder is only about 125 KB
so it could be downloaded from another machine onto a floppy disk if
necessary.

Search for and remove other malware and note the security tips at:
Dealing with Unwanted Spyware and Parasites:

You should re-enable browser extensions after the cleanup.

Regards,
Don
