Hi everyone.

The problem i am having is I keep getting a Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
runtime error Program:C:\program Files\ Internet explorer\Iexplorer.exe

If I reboot IE will work for a while, then it will start to get the error again. So somewhere i have a compatibility problem, I think. When I get the error, it won't let me access the control panel either. After the error started happening I downloaded Opera so I could at least get online when I needed too.

I have not added any new programs. I am not running the Google toolbar.

I just bought this system a month ago from Dell. I'm running Win XP with the current version of IE.

Any help or ideas would be great.

Thanks

Do you have the Google toolbar? If so, uninstall it.

I have run Ad-Aware SE, but only thing that shows up on the log is cookies. And I have run Mcafee virus with nothing coming up. I ran Housecall it came up with nothing. Ran Trojanhunter and it came up with nothing also.

Should I try running a different malware program?

I was just running Mcafee virus scan again and it came up with the following...

File: 4N3Cm.exe
Virus name: Malformed Archive
File Path: C:\Documents and Settings\Brett\Local Settings\Temp|4N3Cm.exe

Mcafee won't clean, quarantine or delete it.

Also just updated with J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 5 from Sun Microsystems

I'm having a similar problem. Here's the details: Win 98SE machine, prob occurs when I try to start Internet Explorer. I think prob may be related to uninstallation of Norton AV. When I try to start IE, I get the following dialog box.

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library <<Dialog Header
Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Iexplore.exe
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

The 98SE machine doesn't have internet access now because of the problem, but I do have another XP machine that does, and both are networked. So I can't update win 98 or update IE from the 98SE machine as it currently operates. I can get to the internet from the XP machine and can move files between machine.

Any suggestions?

Thanx!

Hey, I finally saw this was a XP/2000/2003/NT forum so I moved this to the 98 forum. Sorry.

Has anyone else had this? I'm displaying an identical error:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library <<Dialog Header
Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Iexplore.exe
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

I've had this on two brand new XP machines, different manufacturers (Acer and Fujitsu), different config, the only thing in common is an up-to-date copy of McAfee Internet Security 2006.

Thanks

I fixed it! But I'm not sure if you have the same exact problem..




First of all, I went to the internet explorer icon and went to properties, advanced, then unchecked the box that said "enable third party browser extensions." I then opened internet explorer, and went to tools, then manage add-ons.
I then disabled: Mcafee Antiphishing Filter that's type is "Browser Help Object", NOT "Browser Extension."

Restart internet explorer, and everything should be back to normal...



I dont know if that makes much sense, but make as much sense out of it as you can..Goodluck! :tazz:

I have a client experiencing this problem as well under Windows XP Home SP2. They have McAfee installed (not sure of version) as well as Google Toolbar. The problem really seems intermitant with no rhyme or reason to when it occurs. Also, once it seems fixed in one of the two user accounts, it remanifests in the other user account. The client reports Google Toolbar "coming back" also. Because initially I determined Google Toolbar to be at fault and uninstalled it.

I will give the suggestion from chunkymonkey a try:

}

I'll repost with my results aftere I try the above.
