"Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Every so often, especially on particular sites, and when clicking on images on google images i recieve this message, very annoying when doing research for collee and such, any ideas on how to get rid of it?

Also, im still experiencing problems with WMP and Real Player not playing online.

Hi Killi,

I suggest you start using FireFox, it is by far better than IE in my opinion. To download it, click on my mini sig at the bottom of my post. Try surfing the same sites with firefox and see if you get the same errors. Let me know please

Alan

regardless of whether you try firefox and that fixes your problem it is essntial that IE works..... so we still need to fix the problem

number of XP users have reported situations with Internet Explorer 6 becoming corrupted and reporting a number of different errors. While there is certainly no guarantee, the two procedures listed below have restored functionality to IE6 for many users experiencing problems.

Note: Both methods listed require that the Microsoft Windows XP CD-ROM be available.

Method 1: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x Repair for Windows XP

From the Start menu, select Run.
In the Open field, type sfc /scannow (Note: There is a space between sfc and /scannow)
Select the OK button.
Follow the prompts throughout the System File Checker process.
Reboot the computer when System File Checker completes.

Method 2: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x Repair for Windows XP

From the Start menu, select Search, select All Files and Folders.
Select More Advanced Options and place a checkmark beside Search Hidden Files and Folders option.
Ensure that Search System Folders and Search Subfolders are also checked.
In the All or Part of the File Name box, type ie.inf
In the Look In drop-down menu, select C: or the letter of the hard drive that contains the Windows folder.
Click the Search button.
In the search results pane, find the ie.inf file located in Windows\Inf folder.
Right click the ie.inf file and click Install on the context menu.
Reboot the computer when the file copy process is complete.

I tried using Firefox a long time ago, and it gives me the same problem, just instead of saying IE7 isnt working it says MF isnt working.

Thanks for the speedy reply Mile Runner, will these fixes work with IE7???

if you didnt download the two Windows Service packs i am surprised you have gotten IE 7 to run as far as you have :whistling:

also IE 7 is still beta, to be honest i dont know that much about t :blink: , i dont think realy anyone does......i suggest you stick with 6 untill we can get to know it a little bit better :) but if you dont have the service packs that is your problem. and if you do i am not quite sure how helpful i can be anyway. :help:
