Cannot Launch Internet Explorer

  Zeppelyn 22:38 26 Sep 06

Each time I attempt to start IE6 the home page loads for all of 1 second then I immediately get a pop up saying "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close"

A look at the event log shows the following :-

Type: Error Event ID: 1000

Faulting application iexplore.exe Version 6.0.2900.2180. Faulting module kernel32.dll Version 5.1.2600.2945. Fault Address 0x00012a5b

Another Error above shows Event ID 1001
Fault Bucket 308592778

Have tried System Restore with no luck. OS is XP Home with SP 2 and all updates.

Does anyone know how I might be able fix/repair this ?

Re-install IE. That is probably going to be the best bet (assuming that you have checked for viruses and spyware first).

Already tried a reinstall, did not correct and have done full spyware and virus scans.

Have you tried any other browsers (FireFox, Opera)?

safe mode or system restore?

The other installed is BT Yahoo browser which I believe is based on IE6. This works ok.

You will need to uninstall IE before you can do a re-install. Also a reg cleaner would help to clean the registry of remnants after uninstall.

Best done in safe mode with sys restore disabled.

Well finally resolved by reinstalling Service Pack 2
