    Whenever I click on a link or fav. (or ironically, the windows update website) in IE 6, I get an error message saying, "Internet explorer has encountered a problem and has to shutdown." Then it it gives me the option to send an error report. It never gives me a solution. When I click on the report details it says:
    AppName:iexplore.exe
    App.Ver.:6.0.2800.1106
    ModName:OLEAUT32.dll
    ModVer: 3.50.5016.0
    Offset:00011d93

    How do I fix this?! Someone PLEASE help me!!!!!

    Try reinstalling IE6
    or
    (Assuming Windows XP) Start - Run

    In the dialogue box type

    sfc /scannow

    Press Enter. Note the space between sfc and /scannow

    This runs system file checker, and will replace any damaged files.
