When I click on my explorer icon a window pops up that stats there is an error with Internet Explorer and it needs to close.
It will not open the browser window at all. I have updated it, and downloaded all relevant patches and fixes from microsoft. I have even reinstalled it. I can not figure out how to fix this.
I am using MSN currently but prefer IE. My spybot will not allow updates now that I am unable to use Internet Explorer.
After creating a topic in another area the only suggestion I was given was that I should contact Dell. They have been unhelpfull in every sense of the word. I left that information on my old topic and it has been a couple of weeks and I still have not heard from anyone.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!! :whistling:
Thanks a ton!!

Right click on that explorer icon and choose properties. What is the path?

Try a System File Check (I think this works in Win2000, too)
Start > Run > cmd
sfc /scannow
You will be prompted to insert your (XP) CD.

sfc - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.

Post back and let us know how it's going.
