iexplore and explorer error messages

  rupertk 19:03 06 May 2003

I keep getting error messages, especially when I launch internet explorer and outlook express, viz:
"iexplore has caused an error in unknown> iexplore will now close" or I get one about windows explorer - same message. I cannot access the net or outlook express. I have Windows ME and have run Norton Utilities and Internet Security on the machine several times. I usually get a new problem which is fixable, each time I run windoctor. I have re-installed Windows ME once, but it makes no difference.
Anyone had similar problems or know what I can do? I'm desperate!

I had a similar problem when I upgraded to winME. A corrupted mshtml.dll file caused IE to crash every few mins. tried repair and tried to replace damaged mshtml file but in the end it was down to a re-format and reinstallation of win98. Now sweet as a nut. Is there any reason you don't want to go back (if that's the right term) to '98? As many on this forum recount horror stories of winME
