Sense this morning, I've been receiving this error. Luckily, I have MozillaFirebird as a backup, but I need to get IE fixed.

I took a look around at the Microsoft website and that didn't help much. They've got this error in their, I guess, FAQ. However, most of the problems on how to "fix" were not related to either IE: 6 sp1 or Windows XP.

Now, I've received this error before not long ago, and I installed IE: 6 over the old files and it was fixed. However, it's not letting me do that this time- whenver I try to install IE: 6 or IE: 6 sp1, it says a newer version already exists on my PC and exits the install.

Any help would be much appreciated. My internet security settings, btw, are set at Medium and the like- they are apparently not the cause. I've also tried deleteing my "temp files".

Please do not consider this an expert response, but I did want you to that somebody read this and is trying to work the problem.

I have done a pretty thorough search of several good sources, and all they talk about is security settings when addressing this problem.

What I do know from helping out on several forums is that there are some very nasty "bugs" out there who sole intent is to simply down the browser. I have seen them do a pretty good job of it.

Do you run a firewall and up-to-date virus protection? Others working this problem will want to know.

We'll wait for the next opinions.

Hi LegendsCafe

Do you get this error when trying to view all web pages ?

or just some ?

If just some, can you post a link to one you cannot reach ?

Also a look at your hijackthis log may give us a clue

Please Download hijackthis from

http://tomcoyote.org/hjt

Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

After the scan has finished the "scan" button will turn into a "save log" button

save the log file and paste it here

Do not delete anything yet, as most things hijackthis finds are harmless and needed.
