Explorer closing down with error message!

  otubby1 08:59 12 May 2003

A strange thing has been happening redently, and I wonder if any of you can help me correct it.

I'm running ME on an Athlon 1800+ with 256 meg DDR memory and a 40 GIG IDE HD.

For some reason, and without warning, and always when I hit the back button, I get a dialogue box appears with an obscure message stating that theere has been a problem and Explorer will have to close and do I want to send a report to his lordship!

Now, whether I hit the 'send report' button or the 'don't send' button, the result is that, sometimes things freeze and I have to do the ctrl/alt thing, and sometimes it just closes the window and disconnects.

The first time this happened was only a couple of weeks ago and is becoming more frequent. I have PCCillin as my AV so I don't think it is a virus, I think it is a system problem such as graphics or memory. The graphics card is ProSavage8 3D integrated on an ASRock (K7VM2?)motherboard.

Any ideas, as you know, would be appreciated.

Actually, it will be easier if I just post what it says for ME:

If you click on 'details' when the error mesage come up, does it mention anything about 'mshtml.dll' ? That's what I was getting after upgrading ;-? to ME and using IE6. I tried various repairs and attempted to replace corrupted .dll but to no effect. In the end I went back to win98 and have no problems with IE now.

The last time it happened was just before I discovered this amazing forum and, although I have had a computer since the stone age, it has only been a tool so to speak and I never got into the coding, so I didn't think to look. I have tried a few utilities, but I tend to leave the system stuff to the experts.

Hey, I wish I could go back to windows 3.11.
