XP Updates and explorer
Anchor 100 Jul-21-02 04:30 PM
Have you come across this problem in checking for XP home edition updates I keep getting a message that there are no updates available at this time please try back later I checked two days ago (i always mannnually update) and it showed several critical updates when i checked tonight as the connection speed is better this message appeared

A few days ago i recived a message in IE6 stating that
Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2600.0, faulting module user32.dll, version 5.1.2600.0, fault address 0x00005b1a.

I checked the Microsoft site but could not find any reference other than to re-install IE6 but of course when i attempted this XP told me that I had a newer version of IE6 installed.

Has anyone any idear how to get round this problem of re-installation IE6 in XP home edition ?

I did not get any responses to the post but i did find out what was causing the problem

in XP it was an undsigned driver attached to my new smart media card reader which was a Pc world branded product no new drivers were
available so I uninstalled the unsigned deiver and all now works OK
So I got my money back and bought a Belkin equivalent and it had signed drivers for XP and to date no problems

So beware of XPs dislike of unsigned drivers?
