I did not find the "URL: Hypertext Transfer Protocols" that were in step 1. But here is the info you asked for in step 2.

The "URL: Hypertext Transfer Protocols" were not listed at all?

Click Start > Run > copy&paste regedit.exe /e C:\urlprot.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\HTTP" > OK

That will create the file C:\urlprot.txt
Post the content of that file please.

I must have been tired yesterday, I found the file this morning. Here is what was in the application used to perform action box:


"C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~1\iexplore.exe" -nohome

I did not see anything about DDE should be set to: "%1",,-1,0,,,,
Application should say: IExplore
DDE application not running should be blank
Topic should be: WWW_OpenURL



Do you still need to see the urlprot.txt file?

1.Go to my computer, view/folder options/file types (or control panel, folder options depending on your operating system).
Scroll down to the URL:Hypertext Transfer Protocols, click edit twice and make sure the following is in the application used to perform action box:

"C:\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\iexplore.exe" -nohome

The same applies for URL:Gopher

DDE should be set to: "%1",,-1,0,,,,
Application should say: IExplore
DDE application not running should be blank
Topic should be: WWW_OpenURL

2. Use regsrch.vbs to search for WWW_OpenURL
Post the results




Okay, Step 1 is complete... do you need me to do step 2 again?

(After we finish fixing this thing, I am not letting anyone else near it! LOL!)

Hi,

This is probably a dumb idea, but I'm out of smart ones.

Download and install the Google Toolbar:
http://toolbar.google.com/

One of it's options is to stop popups.
My hope is that it will take over from whatever is blocking them for you and thus will give the control back to you.

Let me know if it works.

I don't know why, but things are just getting worse with this computer. Today,I had a hard time getting a connection (I use dial-up). And over the weekend, I've noticed that when I open my Yahoo Messenger, before I get logged in, all of my desktop icons blink a few times. I thought that was maybe because of all of the work we've been doing to this system. Then, just now, I installed the Google toolbar as you suggested. After installation, I lost connection to the internet. When I tried to reconnect, I got the fatal error message. When I clicked the Details... it said that Kernel32.DLL caused a fault. I tried to copy/paste this error message for you, but my computer froze up so bad that I had to shut it down manually.

My husband has noticed some odd things too when he's using this computer lately. He has some video game emulators, and he's noticed that alot of the BIOS's for many of his games are missing. He re-downloaded the affected games, but I just wonder what other BIOS's, if any, may be missing. And he recently told me about a mysterious file on our desktop that he just deleted a while ago without my knowing/investigating. The file was just named ~ . (The squiggly line was the name of the file) :tazz:

(Yes, I have warned him numerous times about spyware when downloading games, et al)


As for the new Google toolbar, it doesn't help. I still can't get anything to open in a new window.

I'm sorry for being such a pest. Maybe this situation is unsolvable.



**update**
Just now I was trying to search for something in this forum. I found multiple threads that matched my search. Well, I opened one of the thread, and tried to CTRL+F to find my exact search words, and I got this message:

An error has occurred in this dialog.

Error:35

Incompatible Version of the RPC stub.

The same thing happened when trying Edit/Find on this page on other websites as well.

I hope this computer is not a lost cause. Thank you again for taking the time to help me. ;)

At least I know the answer to the "~" file:

http://www.pchell.co...tildefile.shtml

I'm not sure what your hubby means by BIOS's

A computer should only have one and won't do much without one: http://www.webopedia...ERM/B/BIOS.html

Okay, I understand the tilde now. That's not really a problem then since we do not use/keep addresses in any address books on the computer. Just in case we do get any viruses, we don't want to spread them via the address books.


So, what do you make of the "Error 35" as mentioned above? Shall we just start a computer kicking contest in the "Off Topic" section of the forum? LOL!


Thanks!

How To: Fix "Error 35: Incompatible Version of the RPC Stub"

This error occurs when trying to use the "Find" function with Internet
Explorer. It is caused by a fault in v3.50.5041.0 OLEAUT32.DLL. Replace it
with an earlier version to fix the problem. Since it is a system file, you
will have to replace it using DOS. Copy the older version to C:\. Then go
to the start button and restart your computer in MS-DOS Mode. If you have
WindowsME, see below on how to do this.

Once in DOS Mode, type the following (no quotes): "copy C:\OLEAUT32.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\OLEAUT32.DLL". When asked if you want to overwrite, type
"Y". It will then say "1 file copied". Then restart your computer
(alt+ctrl+del or you can just load windows by typing "win" at the DOS
screen).

If that is really the cause it will solve the opening windows problem as well.

I have Windows98 SE... are the instructions for ME any different? I just want to make sure before I mess this thing up any worse than it already is.

I'm sorry for being so annoying. You have spent alot of time helping me, and I greatly appreciate it.

The way to get in DOS is slightly different, but the way to copy a correct version to the correct folder should work the same.

Dont worry about being annoyuing, you're not. :tazz:
