    I get this error message when I try to go into my "favorites"...
    "Iexplore has caused an error in browseui.dll. If problem continues, restart computer."...well, I've done that, and I still can't get into my favorites. All I see is this error message. What I did was, with the help of a friend, went into msconfig, into start up, and turned off alot of stuff because my system resourses was running at 71%. Well, I am now running between 86 and 94% which is fine, but now I can't get into my "favorites". What did I do wrong, and how do I fix it? Have I now lost all the stuff I saved until now in my favorites? Any help would be appreciated.

    You don't say if you are using Win98xx and IE 5xx or 6 but if you are using these programs, try this; Start/Settings/control Panel then click the ADD/REMOVE icon and look for Microsoft Internet Explorer X (where X is your version) and click the remove button. This should give you some choices one of which should be REPAIR IE. Try that and see if that helps. You should do a restart if not prompted before checking your Favorites folder after the repair.

    You should probably clear the temporary internet and history caches as well...


    You might also want to try restoring a prior registry to correct this error, since other MS articles indicate this is basically a registry issue.

    To restore a prior registry in Win98, restart in MS-DOS mode and at the c:\windows prompt enter:

    scanreg /restore

    select a prior started registry. Any settings changes or installs which occured after the new registry date will have to be redone.
