IE 6 crashes if I try to select “File” menu. Also Windows Explorer crashes if I right click anything. I get the "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and must shut down" error.
I have Disabled “Enable third party browser extensions” and disabled all “add-ons”; didn't help.
I ran sfc /scannow and it finds dll’s it wants to repair/replace but wants CD which I don’t have.
I tried “regedit - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup – SourcePath” and everything points to C: - not pointing to D: (cd rom drive).
I've tried to reinstall IE 6 by:
"Method 3: Reinstall Internet Explorer 6 by using the Ie.inf file
If you already have Windows XP Service Pack 2 installed, and you do not want to install Internet Explorer 8, you may be able to resolve problems with Internet Explorer 6 by using the Ie.inf file to reinstall Internet Explorer 6. To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type %systemroot%\inf, and then press ENTER.
Find the Ie.inf file that is located in Windows\Inf folder.
Right-click the Ie.inf file, and then click Install.
Restart the computer when the file copy process is complete."
But I can’t do this because explorer crashes when I right click anything.
Nothing has worked!!!!
