OK, I am in a real bind, I hope someone can help. Here is my system: Microsoft XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 Pentium 4 2.66 GHz, 512 MB of RAM And here is the problem, I have been getting the "Windows Update" Icon on my Taskbar and went ahead and installed the Service Pack 2. I then proceeded to do like normal (after reboot) and access the internet. Evertime I attempt to open Internet Explorer, I get the "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience" window. The only way I can get my Internet Explorer to work is if I uninstall the Service Pack 2. I have tried to reinstall Internet Explorer but it gives me this error "A previous installation has pending work requiring a reboot. You need to restart your computer to complete that installation before running Internet Explorer Setup. Setup will now close." It's like a real bad loop. Does anyone have any ideas???? I appreciate any help.... I had to install Netscape just to keep the internet up and running.
