IE6 IN XP Home
Anchor 100 Aug-04-02 03:49 PM
Out of the blue i have suddenly started to rceive an error Message in IE6 when connected to the internet stating that Explorer has encounterd an error and needs to close
Pasted from the events log below is the deatils as recorded?

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Application Error
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1000
Date: 04/08/2002
Time: 19:03:53
User: N/A
Faulting application iexplore.exe, version 6.0.2600.0, faulting module mshtml.dll, version 6.0.2716.2200, fault address 0x000931d4.

I have checked the named file and it appears to be OK
Is there any way of reparing /reinstalling IE6 in Windows XP as a call at the microsoft site states that a newer version of IE6 is installed and the insertion of a CD with the latest version also states that an newer version is installed ?

Or can I extract this file from the XP home editon CD?

Go to Add/Remove Programs, and select Internet Explorer 6 and click remove. It will come up with a prompt and ask if you want to Convert To Previous Config or if you want to REPAIR. Select REPAIR and let it do its thing, it should fix your problem. I would suggest saving your favorites just in case it wacks them.

I attempted the add/remove programs in XP but the only place it is shown is in add Windows components which does not repair IE6 as it did in other versions
But the method below is a way to do it and so far for me it has worked

The ideal way is to edit the registry as described in the link at the bottom of this post
but I have stayed away from registry editing in XP as it can be problematical


Method 1: Reinstall or Repair Windows XP
To repair or reinstall Internet Explorer and Outlook Express in Windows XP, complete the following procedure while you are logged on as an administrator:

1.Use the System File Checker tool to scan all of the protected files on your computer:
1.Click Start, and then click Run.

2.In the Open box, type sfc /scannow, and then click OK. Note that you may be prompted to insert the Windows XP installation CD-ROM.
3.Test to determine if the issue is resolved. If the issue is resolved, skip the remaining steps. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.

Method 2
3.Edit the registry(on how and what) more information is posted in the link below

Method 3
4.Complete an in-place upgrade of Windows XP, a repair of Windows XP, or reinstall Windows XP. For additional information about how to complete an in-place upgrade or repair of Windows XP, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Sorry Roger I run only 2k and I for some reason thought it was the same, I am glad you were able to fix it though.

That's OK I hve just checked the link form my last post and for reasons best known to Microsoft despite the fact it worked OK when posting it only now works if you copy and paste the article number in the search box when you get to the Microssoft site?

Since the last post I have found by accident a method of restoring
single system files in XP that have ben causing problems

Use the XP search function all files and folders (Local Drive)
type the full acurate file name in the box

When the file appears in the last Known good folder!!!!

Right Click to the open contaning folder find file copy and then paste to the correct location?

I found this by accident and it worked a dream
as the file was digitaly signed and was compattable with XP in every aspect

It my be a little more difficult if the File is corrupted?
