I have rebooted, but it makes no difference. I have uninstalled both IE8 & WMP 11 and tried just loading IE 7, but that also crashes upon opening.
I have checked for malware doing the following steps:
Ran Bitdefender online scanner, no malware.
Ran Malwarebyte scanner, no malware
Ran ESET online scanner, no malware
Ran SUPER Antispyware, removed a few adware items.
Rebooted the computer again, still IE crashes regardless of which version I install.
The error message when IE crashes states:
The error signature states:
AppName: iexplore.exe AppVer: 8.0.6001.18702 ModName: aclayers.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.5906 Offset: 0003d7fb
If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears. Don't necessarily need to have IE & WMP working but its annoying that they aren't bescause they should be, if that makes sense.
