Hello, I am getting the following error message on start up of W2KP.

1.Could not find the file iexplore.exe ( or one of it's components. Make sure the path and the file name are correct and that all required libraries are available.

2.Could not run or load 'iexplore' specified in the registry.exe. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the registry.


These files do exist on my computer.
Help!
Is there any fix for this??

If it's a win2k box then IE is part of it.

If IE still works then skip step 1. and go to step 2.

Step 1> click start button\run> type in regedit

browse to hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\current version\run

on the left hand side of the registy editor window locate a line that has iexplore.exe in it and delet the string value.


Step 2>Go to add/remove programs in the control panel-- click on IE and click remove, select the repair function.

Restart PC and lemme know if this doesn't fix it, we may need more info if it doesn't.

Click start button\click run\type in sfc\hit enter

scanned for altered or missing files, have your installation disk/files available when you do this.

Also, you can try this:

There is only three possible place's that this could be started from in the registry:

hkey_current_users\software\microsoft\windows\current version\run

and

hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\current version\run and run services

just get msconfig from a windows xp machine, copy it into the winnt\system32 directory, then click start button\run, type in msconfig, click the services tab, check the box that says "hide all microsoft services", click the button that says disabled all 3rd party services, click the startup tab, look for an entry that has iexplore as it's executable, uncheck it, apply changes, say yes to the reboot prompt.



Or just re-install internet explorer.

This solved the problem.

button\run, type in msconfig, click the services tab, check the box that says "hide all microsoft services",
click the button that says disabled all 3rd party services, click the startup tab, look for an entry
that has iexplore as it's executable, uncheck it, apply changes, say yes to the reboot prompt.

But, I have to boot up in selective mode.

If selective mode is being used then change it back to normal mode and see if the situation returns. If so, again choose selective mode and uncheck all but one box(leave the startup group checked for our purposes), apply it all and reboot, if the problem is still there, then we know it is definately a startup group program causing the problem, process of elimination takes over. Use the following website to discover which program is causing this situation:

http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_pages/startup_full.htm

this is the MOST complete list of startup programs I have seen, so far on the net.

If the problem does not return as a result of checking the startup group located under selective startup, then we will check another box under selective startup, AND uncheck the previous (startup group) box, reboot aftyer applying. Problem is not there, then go unchecked that option and recheck a different one, apply and reboot, and so on, and so on until we isolate the problem.

Once the program causing this error is isolated we can then discover how top deal with it. UNinstall/possibly a vendor's patch etc,etc,etc...

Cheers.
