iexplore - application error

When working with explorer i get frequently the following message:
iexplore-application error"The instruction at 0x77745b8 refrenced memory at 0x02181f20. The memory could not be read. Click OK to terminate the program"
after clicking OK Explorer does not work anymore and I have to re-boot the pc to get normal operation.
Any idea what causes it,please.

A browser extension ma be causing this. First, eliminate spyware from the system:
http://www.winxptutor.com/antispy.htm

Standard response material re Spyware, Adware, BHOs, and other Malware:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Browser_Issues/Q_20975384.html

Further more, post the HijackThis log here after running all the spyware removers. Someone here (or me) can assist you on that.

Temporary workaround:

1. Click Start, Run, type Control Inetcpl.cpl.
2. Click the Advanced tab.
3. Under Browsing, click to clear the Enable third-party browser extensions (requires restart) check box.
4. Restart Internet Explorer.

the HijackThis webpage is currently not available therefore I cannot give it to you now.  Have run Ad-Aware and installed SpywareBlaster, result is the error message does not pop up anymore - but WINDOWS EXPLORER still stops working!!

Note that you can enable the BHOs later once you determine which one is causing the problem.

Looks like your advice has done the trick!!  I have disabled all 6 BHO's and so far WINDOWS EXPLORER and INTERNET EXPLORER are working fine.  I will now start to lokate the one causing the problem and wil let you know.  It may take a few days but I thought I give you the good news first!
Best regards.

It appears the problem is still there.  I noticed that each time I have been in the Internet and returned to "normal" pc activities I cannot open WINDOWS EXPLORER and/or MY COMPUTER. I still have all BHO's neutralised as per your recommendation.  Nothing else has changed in my system - no new programs installed.  The only thing that happened is that my INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER (TELSTRA BIGPOND BROADBAND) has modified my E-mail account profile.  Can you help ,please?

In the TOOLBARCOP I noticed that one toolbarbutton (Microsoft Activesync) is doubbled.  Is this important?

duplicate Microsoft Activesync button is non-fatal and can be ignored safely.

When I boot up the pc I normally check my mail with MICROSOFT OUTLOOK.  On this occasion I used the link in the e-mail from experts-exchange and read your note on BTW - thank you very much.  I than minimized the Internet and tried WINDOWS EXPLORER.  WINDOWS EXPLORER opened once without problem but thereafter no more.  Same applies for MY COMPUTER.  I will now have to re-boot first if I want to re-activate WINDOWS EXPLORER. I have no idea what causes it.

No idea why this problem is intermittent. You may perhaps wait for someone here to solve this problem, or request for refund of points from the Community Forum.
