I have a newly install w2k workstation.  Everytime I attempt to open anything I get a "IExplorer.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows.  How do I repair this error?  Remember...I can't even get onto the internet.  
Thanks,

stlcards2004,
thanks for the help.  I did what you suggested and it said that it was successful but....(I hate that word sometimes) I'm still getting the same error.  I know that I need to get online to upgrade my Internet Explorer version but can't due to this error.  Got any more suggestions?
Thanks,
SCUD

I had a similar problem recently.  I fixed it by uninstalling all hot fixes and IE6, then reinstalling IE6 SP1 and then the latest Hot Fix.

After looking at my question again...I have made a mistake.  I am getting a "explorer.exe" error not a IExplorer.exe.  I'm terribly sorry and hope that I haven't troubled any one of you.  But still could use some help.  
Thanks!!!
