Seems as though I am not the only one having this problem as I browse the forum. No resolution yet so we will see what happens here.

I am very computer proficient but this totally has me baffled and going nuts.

System is Win2k server using SP4 and IE6.

I was surfing the Internet yesterday when my browser froze for a second and closed. Ever since then, I have gotten the "Application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005) error" when I try the shortcut or directly launch the iexplore.exe file. I am currently using FireFox as I write this. I have tried the following:

All spyware programs have been updated and ran in safe mode.
Ran Microsoft Antispyware
Ran AdAware
Ran Ewido Suite
Uninstalled IE via the c:\winnt\inf\ie.inf and right click then select install.
Ran Hijack This and cleaned some things up.
Ran CCleaner.
Ran Norton antivirus.

Strange this is, when I initially reinstall IE, it installs IE 5 and that works flawlessly. When I upgrade to IE6, is quites working. ALSO, when I boot into safe mode and launch IE 6, it works fine!! It just will not work in normal mode.

My theory is that is a corrupt registry key or file such as a dll that IE 5 does not use but IE 6 does. I even deleted the entire Internet Explorer key in the registry under Software (not a good idea, by the way) and let it rebuild itself via a reinstall and that didn't work.

Here is the current HiJack This log:

Hello,

First of all, you are still using a previous version of hijackthis..so please update your version by starting hijackthis,
click on the 'misc tools'>Check for update online. Download the new version (1.99.1), unzip it and make sure you put it in an permanent folder.
(If the update option doesn't work, please download your new version here

For the iexplore error, perform next:

Go to start > run and copy and paste next line in the field:

regedit /a C:\backupkey.reg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RPCKDM

Then open notepad and and copy and paste next bold in it:
(don't forget to copy and paste REGEDIT4)

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RPCKDM]


Save this as fix.reg Choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.
This is how the regfix must look afterwards: Posted Image
Doubleclick on it and when it asks you if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click yes/ok.

Reboot and open your Internet Explorer.
Post a new hijackthislog in your next post.
