Runtime error in IE6

  Datcho 17:09 28 Jan 2003

Since installing IE6 from a PC Advisor cover disk, I am unable to access a website using a link in an email. If I click such a link I receive an error box with the words: Runtime error 216 at 00002EE1. My PC then locks up completely and I have to switch off at the electric wall socket [even the off switch on the PC locks up!] Can anyone help?

Have you run a virus test lately?

Thanks - the answer is "yes" - the fault is more than just a virus problem, but thanks again anyway.

The reason why I ask is Runtime Error 216 can be associated with the SubSeven Trojan virus.

Apart from two kind responses from spikeychris, no one else seems to have an answer - or do they? Is there anyone else out there who can help me? I was still experiencing the problem, so now I 'copy' the URL in the e-mail, 'comeout' of Outlook Express, click on the 'Stay connected' box, then open up Explorer and 'paste' the URL to complete the link. It is a long drawn out job which would be much simlified if I was not plagued with this 'runtime error'. Please see my original message for details, if you can help! Please! From Datcho.

Sometimes its easier to start again then try to fix it. There are a few reasons why the runtime can pop its head up, so you could just un-install IE6 and then re-install.

You could also go to add/remove programs and click to un-install IE6 but choose the repair option you will get. This could save you the trouble of the un-install..
