I am having with IE 6, when I try to use the search function on a webpage such as ebay, buy.com, or any other site with a search function, an error occurs and IE closes. I am using XP professional and I removed the "send error report" function as suggested in a previous thread, but I am still having the problem. Please Help- I need to do some christmas shopping!
thank you in advance.

I am having the same exact problem and have been trying to fix it for days. I have tried everything I have been told. I just want to know how to completely remove IE6 so I can reinstall fresh. I have gone into add/remove programs, but appaenlty that did not completely remove IE6, because when I try to reinstall, a screen comes up indicating that I already have the latest version and setup cannot continue!!!!!!!!!!

Hiya

djfortafan: You say you've removed the error reporting tool, but you are still experincing errors. Do these come in the form of a popup box with a Details button on it? If so, click it and copy the contents here.

Also, try this. Go to Tools | Internet Options. Advanced tab. Under Browsing, look for Disable Script Debugging and tick that. Underneath that will be Display a Notification about every script error. Untick that. Apply and OK.

John: I have put a reply about how to drop down to your older version of IE in your other thread.

Regards

eddie

try running the repair of IE6 in add/remove... you will be asked if you want to uninstall or repair/fix it.... choose fix /repair.



Savvy :)

I can't seem to find the fix/repair function. I used it before when I was running 98- but I am using xp now and i can't find it anywhere- not even in windows help. So- I'm at square one:(

There is not an option to remove IE 6 in XP since it is the default version that comes with XP.

The only thing I can suggest is to try and install it from the microsoft site to see if that works. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downloads/ie6/default.asp


One thing I always do, is make sure I have a copy of a different web browser installed on my PC's. This way if something crops up like you have experinced, I can use my alternate. Currently, I have Opera 6.0 installed as my alternative for when those things go wrong.

Hi,

We haven't heard the exact text of your error message as yet.
Knowing in which module this conflict takes place might help us further.

Click on 'click here' in your error message, and tell us what is says:

Hi-
I have attached the error details. I tried using the fix for ie5.5 that was suggested earlier, but it won't work for me. It requires the fix/repair function that I do not have.

I have reset my security level to the default. I have also tried to reinstall ie 6 from microsoft's website but I have recieved no love from the computer gods.

Thanks!
Bill

Hi- I went to add/remove programs and ftapp.dll isn't listed. Should I just delete that file or will that cause other problems? I am running Windows XP pro.

Thank You
