    I have been receiving a memory error on IE and I was thinking about reinstalling IE. Error message reads: The instruction at Ox01485f6c referenced memory at Ox01485f6c . The memory could not be "read". There is something about it in Help and Support for XP, but basically when I contacted Microsoft, they said that I needed to wait for a patch for it. My son's are running WIndows XP too and don't have the problem. So I was thinking about reinstalling IE.

    My question is this..........what is the easiest way to reinstall IE? If I uninstall IE first, then I have no browser.

    Suggestions? I'm running Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180).

    IE is an integral part of Windows, "uninstalling" (while technically possible in SP2) is not desirible in my view.

    Run System File Check first.

    Start-Run- type
    SFC /scannow
    and press Enter

    Make sure you type the space between "SFC" and " /scannow"

    A dialog box will appear and give progress, it will disappear when complete. You may or may not be asked to put in your XP disk.

    Ok....I see your point. I went and ran the SFC /scannow, hoping that it wouldn't ask for my disc, as I don't have one. I didn't receive one when I got the computer. Apparently you have to ask for it and they charge you, even though it is preinstalled. (When I ordered my boys computer recently, I realized that and ordered one for theirs.) Anyway, I ran it and then of course, I got a Windows File Protection window that says: Files that are required for WIndows to run properly must be copied to the DLL Cache. Insert your Windows XP Professional CD2 now.....:eek: ......

    Any other suggestions??
