Internet Exploer terminates as soon as it opens with an error with the mfc42.dll error. I have searched the knowledge base with no solutions. I have reinstalled IE (6.0 SP1) and even recreated the dll file. The system is running ME and I tried to upgrade to XP, but the same problem occured. The biggest problem is I can't download anything (patches or upgrades) while this is happening. Any other suggestions?
