Recently, my IE6.0 sometimes has a dialog box appear stating
"Microsoft Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close." A report is prepared and sent to MS and after closing IE and sending, it restarts IE.

This was initially a nuisance, but has become a royal pain since I may need to log back onto the pages I was viewing.

I checked the technical details, but could only tell that the problem involves iexplorer.exe v.6.0.

Any suggestions on how I may eliminate these missives to Bill Gates?

You can try an IE "repair" in the add/remove programs in the control panel. Select IExx and Internet tools....click the remove button. You will then get an option to replace or repair IE. Choose the repair option.

You may want to ck the windows update site for any patches or plugins available for IE 6.0. I don't have it, so I am not sure on that.

Another thing....what os are you running. I don't think IE 6.0 and ME or 98 really get along that well.....might want to consider a move back to 5.5


Good Luck

Thanks NotRite2,

I'll try the add/remove programs solution later.

Just wanted to let you know that I'm running Windows98SE, 128 RAM, and IE6.0.

Hi.

Next time you get such an error, would you mind checking its details once again, and tell us the "AppName" as well as the "ModName" you see there, please?

Also do this:

Go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php#det , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please show us its contents.

You do have some stuff that badly needs to be removed.

Run Hijack This, and check ALL of the following items. Next, shut down ALL Internet Explorer windows, and have Hijack This remove all checked:

Next, download Spybot - Search & Destroy
After installing, press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

Next, go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

Good luck,

Hi TonyKlein,

I forgot to mention to you that the last time an error report was sent, the AppName was iexplore.exe. I didn't copy down the ModName. Will post it when this reoccurs.

Hi TonyKlein,

I removed suggested files with HijackThis and ran Spybot - S&D.

I am astonished at the number of additional ad files that Spybot was able to discover that Ad-Aware did not disclose.

I noticed that my ScanDisk ran better and have additional resources now freed up.

Thanks TonyKlein. I don't think I'll have any more of those irritating reports to Bill Gates.

Looks like Bill Gates got lonely because the error reports have resumed. (2 only so far)

From the details of this error report I got the following:
AppName - iexplore.exe
AppVer - 6.0
ModName - comctl32.dll
ModVer - 5.81.4916.400
Offset - 0001a8re

Also my webpages now open with the speed of molasses.


Anyone have any suggestions?

Another error report was sent to MS just now, but it was caused by a different ModName.

From the details the error report was caused by
AppName - iexplore.exe
ModName - rpcrt.dll

On the previous occassion, I ran Sysbot about 1 hour before the error report, so I don't think that many spyware could have been added to my computer during that time.

Does anyone have any idea how this may be eliminated?

Looks like there was another thread on this. If I missed this forget the following:

If you want to stop MS Error Reporting do this:

In Registry Editor (Regedit.exe), create a DWORD value called IEWatsonEnabled and set it to 0 in the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

If you have a real problem this want fix it but will stop these annoying error reports. I was getting a lot of those so I disabled this function and haven't had them anymore and very little problems that caused my pc to not function properly. I think that function is overly sensitive.
