    Default Error message from IE5.5

    When I shut down IE5.5 I get it popping open again with the message that an error has been detected and do I want to send an error report
    if I select 'no' it still wont shut and keeps opening this box
    When I send the error report it shuts but the next time i use it and shut down it happens again
    Any Suggestions?

    Default Re: Error message from IE5.5

    It sounds like something is crashing internet explorer. The error reporting is a new 'feature' that the copied from netscape, to help them fix bugs in the program.
    Unfortunatly I can only guess what is causing the crashes on shutdown, but try checking for some unneeded plugins in
    Program Files\Internet Explorer\Plugins
    Windows\Downloaded Program Files
    Reinstalling would be the easiest fix, but unfortunatly because internet explorer is integrated with windows you would have to reinstall windows as well.
    This is one of the reasons that I started using other browsers as they are much simpler to fix.

    Default Re: Error message from IE5.5 may remove the Error Reporting tool if you wish, as follows:

    (i) Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

    (ii) Double-click Add/Remove Programs.

    (iii) Select 'Internet Explorer Error Reporting'.
    Click Add/Remove.

    (iv) Restart your computer to complete the uninstall.

    Then, I would then suggest you use Internet Explorer's 'Repair' function, as follows:

    (i) Go - Start > Run > and type *exactly* the following (maybe copy & paste for convenience) > rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE5Maintenance 'C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE' /g 'C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt'

    (ii) Press Enter > click on 'Repair Internet Explorer' and then follow your on-screen directions.

    (iii) When prompted to, restart your system.

    I hope that will fix your problem.
