I hope you can help, this is driving me nuts.
My IE6 has been working without a hitch until the other day. I went to go online as usual and I got this box: Data Error (cyclic redundancy check) and IE would not open at all.
I managed to get online eventually via my ISP dial up (freeserve) and tried to download a new IE, no response.
I downloaded Netscape (7.0) after a while and am using this to browse.
To cut a long story short. I now have zillions of problems due to my half baked attempts to fix this. (My partner needs IE to operate his digital banking).
I thought Norton Systemworks might be causing problems so I uninstalled it and since then everything has gone wrong. I am now left with only NPROTECT which is full of files and folders and I don't know what they are so don't want to delete.
When I click on IE shortcut I now get a dialogue box offering to download directx 9, if I agree to this it just downloads and re-starts the PC without installing anything. I have tried this numerous times but can't get it to work.
Anything I have tried has been met with various error messages like: RICHED20.dll missing or RICHED32.dll missing amongst others.
I don't have a Windows XP CD as HP didn't give me one.
Also, scandisk is saying it can't scan hardrive because it can't open it.
Have I got a damaged hard drive?
Sorry this is so long and incoherent, but (you may have guessed already) I'm not computer - clever.
Thanks for reading.
