I had some problems with virus, spyware, etc. on my computer when loading XP SP2. I removed XP SP2 and finally managed to rid myself of the other problems. Actually, I submitted a Hijack log to you guys and I did what you told me to do. The bugs are gone now but the end result is that IE will lock up and not respond. It usually does this when trying to open another link in a website. It is random. If you right click on the link then pick "Open As a Window". It will work. The error message I get when IE finally closes after not responding. I have to use Task Manager or the Red X in the upper right hand corner of the window to get out.
Error Signature: Appname: IEXPLORE.EXE AppVer: 6.0.2800.1106 ModName: SHDOCVW.DLL ModVer: 6.0.2800.1584 Offset: 00006E3C
I'll get a message that An error has occured in IE and IE will close.
I decided to reload IE so I followed the steps in the Tutorial How to Repair IE 6. I tried the System File Checker. I rebooted but same problem. I then tried Method 2 which edits the register. I went to the file IE.INF in the Windows folder, right click then installed. I got a message that I needed IE SP1. I tried to download but I got a message that I have a newer version of IE. I tried to copy the download file to my computer but no luck there either. Do I have to reload the entire operating system?
I am open for any suggestions.
