unable to run IE through a link, can open a URL normally in IE, but if using a link I get the message: "IE has encountered a problem and needs to close, we are sorry for the inconvenience" to which IE shuts down.
using XP, no changes apart from deleted overnet recently, but reinstalled it to see if this would cure the problem, no!
have restored system to previous configuration but problem stil persists.
got the original XP disc, tried all the 3 repairs as stated for XP, none would work at all, would not accept the path on the first one, or the file: ie.inf on the second one, or the file path on the third one
Tried a new installation of IE6 from another disc, installed OK, but problem still persists, can run IE OK but on some links, it goes down on error, trying to open a link in an email and it does the saem, this is the most important, not able to open links unless they have the full URL so that I can copy and paste.
Thanks for your info folks, I have tried the repairs in question I have now mananged to repair IE and can now open links but when I close down IE I get the same error message, I can live with this now until next re-install
