My problem is as follows;
IE6 crashes on startup; the window appears with a blank screen then bombs to a "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" box. Details are;
AppName: iexplore.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.2180 ModName; unknown ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: ddcbb5a3
'Help and Support' crashes on startup with a "Data Execution Prevention" box. Clicking on 'What should I do" results in the same error occuring with the help and support centre.
System restore crashes with another "encountered a problem" box.
The system has been virus scanned (AVG) and spyware checked using Spybot and AdAware.
Can anybody advise on a solution? I've tried manually installing a version of IE6 I had come with an application disk, but it just tells me itcan't as a more recent version is installed. For the reason just described, I havn't been able to load a registry restore point. Firefox workd, mercifully, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this!
Any help much appreciated!
