    Hi guys. I have a problem with internet explorer which is literally giving me a headache. Have spent all day trying your archived solutions but nothing works. What happens is that if I try to open more than one IE, the second one freezes with a blank screen. Then, I have to use task manager to kill it, and both die. Sometimes there are multiple versions of IE showing up on task manager even though I've only opened two. This also happens if I am trying to use a hyperlink - second window comes up blank and freezes. Help!

    Hello and thanks very much
    The first option I downloaded successfully but when I tried to run it it came up with: run-time error '-2147221231 (80040111)': Automation error Class Factory cannot supply requested class
    The second option froze during download several times.
    Eek.

    Hello
    Thought I'd get back and let you know what has happened. IE wasn't on add/remove program. What I did was download the latest IE, and that seems to have solved the problem. So far. Thanks for your help,
