Hole - Again

  Foz1961 15:54 18 Sep 2003

I am still getteing the error message HOLE has encountered a problem and will have to close after start up, when the desk top appears. I have tried ad-aware complete with the latest upgrade and removed lots of stuff!! some even refering to hole, however the error message still appears. the only way to stop it seems to be disabling iedll.exe in the start up menu.

Any other ideas, cause it is doin my head in!!

The last post gives you a website where you can download a tool to remove IEDll.exe.

Doing a search using uk.yahoo.com gives quite a few different threads on IEDLL.exe, not sure if you want to read them.

: Sandra's site says that iedll.exe is a BHO (browser helper object) and so should be removed with the help of the following free utility, a browser hijack blaster:

let me know if more help is needed...

tried this, doesn't appear to have made a difference. so far i have reinstalled xp, aol, virus checked it with norton, ad awared it and now browesr hijacked it!!

the only thing that seems to stop it is disabling it in the start up menu

Appologies to all who have contributed for not replying sooner, i have been away, however i have tried all the above and i still get the message. it would appeard that my iedll.exe application was ammended on 15/09, but by what i have no idea, this would be about the time the prob started.
what does iedll.exe do and can i just remove it, beacuse it would appear to be the only way to get rid of it
