This is on a fresh Windows 98 install and with IE6 SP1 and also IE5.5 SP1.  When running it with IE5.5 it would throw up a BSOD with these numbers 0028:00000017.  When its ran with IE6 SP1 it will go to 33% and then lock up with these numbers:  Code: 0xc0000005  Flags: 0x00000000.  It does crash other times on some sites but most of the time it works on all other site.  I have reinstalled Windows and IE many times and have also tried a new RAM chip.  It does this whether I am running updates over DSL or Dial-Up.


Thank you

Greetings, stevecuccia!
  Does the problem occur only with Internet Explorer update or with all updates?  Make sure your system time and date is correct. Make sure your IE Encoding is set to Western European. (View > Encoding) Make sure your temporary internet files and cookies are deleted.

Click on Start, Run and type REGSVR32 DISPEX.DLL and hit OK.  You should see a popup message that this process succeeded.

Alternative way to download Windows and other updates. Use Bigfix.

It is now locking up in all of IE.  Sometimes I get a DDhelp.dll error.  It always locks up in Windows Updates and now most of the time everywhere else.

Reinstall Internet Explorer, as sunray said.

Check for virus and adware

I fixed it.  It was being caused by either a bad RAM chip or corrupt DirectX.  I tried new RAM and removed DirectX and it works fine.
