"Microsoft Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." - (IE 6.1 fully updated being a pain in the arse). *OS Windows 2000 Server fully patched* *IE 6.1 patched* *Zero hardware conflicts or problems* IE was working when I shut down my computer the other night. When I woke up and booted the machine the next afternoon it refused to work. I've tried everything I know. There is nothing wrong with my internet connection, as I am using Opera 7.23 to post this on the same machine. I've had this problem before and a complete removal and re-installation of IE worked, but this time it hasn't. I've tried to repair, reinstall IE, reset all IP settings using the CMD. Registry editing etc. I'm at wits end now that the complete removal and re-install won't work. Ad-aware and Spybot - Search and Destroy haven't come up with anything. There are no firewall or network conflicts. I know I haven't removed anything I shouldn't have, I've got my MSCE 2000 advanced server, Cisco Networking, and my A+ and have been working in the industry for 5 years now. If anyone can think of something I've overlooked I'd greatly appreciate the help.
