Internet Explorer System Fader Error (0x0eedfade) iexplorer.exe application error.

Hi all

I keep getting the above error in internet explorer.

I was getting the same problem with internet explorer 6 so I installed IE 7 to see if the problem went.

I have disabled windows errors by going to control panel/system/advanced/error reporting

Still no luck with that so im really struggling, IE just comes up with an error within 30 seconds of using it and has to close and so i can not use it.

Help would be highly appreciated

Greetings, auraorange !

1. Disable Addons.  If you have Windows XP SP2, go to Tools > Add-on Manager, and uncheck the addons.

If you cannot open IE, disable third party extensions. Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > Advanced tab. Uncheck "Third party extensions". Click Ok. Reboot computer.

2. Clear your cache.  Go to Control Panle > Internet Options > General tab.  Under Temporary Internet Files, click "Delete Files" button. Click OK.

3. Reset IE settings.  Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > Programs.  Click on "Reset Web Settings" button. Go to Advanced tab and click "Restore Defaults" button. Go to Security tab and move the bar to Medium or Default. Click OK. Close all browsers. Reboot the computer.

4. Check if a program running in the background is interfering with Internet Explorer. Temporarily disable antivirus, firewall, antispyware, ad-blocker, popup blocker, and all Norton programs.

5. Repair or reinstall Internet Explorer 6 and Outlook Express 6 in Windows XP

Best wishes!

Hi War1

thanks a lot for the feedback.

Before I try all of those things.

I searched for this problem in EE before posting my question

someone suggested to go to display/click appearance then disable fade options in my graphics settings.

Would this possibly be a link to the problem?

Yes, you can try that option first.

1. Display Properties > Effects > uncheck Fade Effect
2. Uncheck Auto Restart in properties My Computer
3. Delete cookies/temp files at start up

 It seems to me there is a fault with the installation. Try uninstalling and installing it again. Also this might also help:

Thanks for all the feedback.

of nearly all suggestions given I had tried most, however this is what I did and appears to have solved my problem...

"1. Disable Addons.  If you have Windows XP SP2, go to Tools > Add-on Manager, and uncheck the addons."

So thank you WAR1 for your assistance this time.

Once again the EE experts have done it again!
