I'm in a really bad bind. My IE6 won't open new windows properly. THAT'S NOTHING. ...
I was already in habit of right-clicking, then copying the urls, when I realized that I can't download Critical Updates either. BIG PROBLEM.

I go to windowsupdate.microsoft, and do everything I'm supposed to, then when the small download window opens ('Accept'), the browser freezes. Then crashes.

Never fails.

---

After that, this info comes up as the problem.

Microsoft Internet Explorer
AppName: iexplore.exe
Offset: 00040894
ModName: rpcrt4.dll

So I tried downloading rpcrt4.zip and led my browzer (Opera) to unzip it into Windows/System/ -- But it will NOT override the old dll and continues to say it's in process.

I've also uninstalled iexplore and then re-downloaded it, and re-installed.

What has happened to my IE and what do I need to do to fix it??

Thanks Guys.

All (at least recent) IE versions have a "repair" facility. Have you tried going to the Control Panel, Add/Remove programs, double-click your IE, and clicking the "Repair" radio button? I have IE 6, and it has gone awry a few times, but it has always fixed itself using "Repair".

Yes,
I've uninstalled/reinstalled it twice. And I've used ADD/REMOVE's Repair option twice also.

Sounds like it's not IE that's the problem; something has gone haywire with Windows. Have you tried using the System File Checker (Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Information, Tools, System File Checker)? It looks for missing OR CORRUPTED files, and will reinstall them from your Win disk, if inserted in your CD.
