Do I need to reformat and reinstall everything? I have my recovery disks and I'm running windows 2000, sp4.
However, I'm wondering if it's linked to another problem -- at about the same time, I would occasionally get a "iexplorer.exe" error message that says that it needs to shut down the computer when I would open My Computer or My Document. It would either shutdown or a message would come up about recovering the Active Desktop and ask if I had added an item. It seems that I fixed this problem -- but, I'm now getting a iexplorer.com dll initialization failed when I shutdown. Today, I'm getting more of those old error messages when I'm on the Internet and that they want to send a repor to Microsoft.
Would anyone know if the problems are linked? Any ideas?
If I can avoid the reformat and reinstalling all the Hotfixes, this would be great. I'll be getting a new laptop, but it'd be nice to keep this computer clean.
