run any windows updates lately?

This error seems to be coming up a lot lately and seems to have something to do with an update to Internet Explorer (I know it doesn;t say internet explorer).

Check the web for KB891711 update. This was part of my problem (gerryf) has been trying to help me for the last 2 or 3 days. I actually made things worse and had to reload Win98se. if i had caught the initial problem with the windows update instead of suspecting spyware I could have fixed it quickly.

I also found a fix in MS 98 knowledge base for this problem, it was labeled as bowseui.dll problem (had explorer.exe in the text).

Good luck!
