Runtime error - Internet Explorer

When I try to launch Internet Explorer I get a Runtime error in a new window (MS Visual C++ Runtime library - this application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way...)and the browser won't launch. System restore solves it for a while but then it happens again. I share the home pc with another user who has no problems. How can I resolve this?

How to reinstall or repair Internet Explorer and Outlook Express in Windows XP

Try uninstalling the Google Toolbar, if you have it installed, mbogey.

for the tip Diodorus Siculus. I didn't specify originally that I'm running XP SP2 - the MS advice for those users seems to be to run updates, instructions for repair of Internet Explorer / Outlook only being available to XP / pre-XP setups. I could be wrong?!

have uninstalled Google toolbar as you suggest - so far so good...

Thanks VOG.
Didn't know anything about windows file protection or system file checker before now! Anyone having similar problems, try reading VOG's link above.
