Hi, I am new here. I tried searching to see if my problem was addressed previously and while I did see some posts referencing runtime errors, I did not see an answer to my problem. If there was a fix posted and I missed it, I apologize.

The error message I have been receiving is this:

Microsoft Visual C ++ Runtime Library

Program C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

This application has requested the Runtime terminate it in an unusual way.

Any suggestions on fixing the problem, whatever it may be, would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Lets Re-install IE.
Download and run this script from Kelly's Korner. (link). This will help u to re-install IE easily.
Note: U might have to download all updates for ur IE again.

When I try to do the download, I get a message telling me:

The file "IEXPLORE.EXE" on Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 CD is needed.

Type the path where the file is located then click ok.

I don't know where it is located, I am completely computer illiterate.

Ok, I did as you instructed and it still didn't fix the problem. So I checked out jadeinATL's post (iexplore won't launch) since he had the same problem. Since uninstalling Google worked for him, I tried it. It worked for me too. Now IE will open for me. I really liked having the Google toolbar...but whatever works. I wonder why it never caused a problem previously? I've had it this way for almost 2 yrs.

Thanks for all the info. This place is great.
