Cannot open IE in Win 2000

When opening IE in Win 2000 it just comes up with the Error report and if you click ok ( with Restarting IE checked in the box) it stays there. But if we uncheck it, it goes away.

Hello lokesh1234,

1. Check if plugin is interfering. Disable third party extensions. With IE open, go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced. Uncheck "Third party extensions". Click Ok. Reboot computer.

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

3. Reset IE settings.  Go to Tools > 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. If no joy, check if a program running in the background is interfering with Internet Explorer. Temporarily disable antivirus, antispyware, popup blocker, ad blocker, and all Norton programs.

5. IF no joy, perform a repair of Internet Explorer. From Control Panel select Add/Remove Programs. Scroll down to Microsoft Internet Explorer and highlight it. Click on the Add/Remove button. When the IE Tools menu comes up, select Repair. Click OK.

6. If repairing does not work, uninstall and reinstall IE. At the same IE Tools menu, select "Restore the previous Windows configuration". Then reinstall Internet Explore.

You can also access the IE Toolbar by clicking Start > Run and type

Hope this helps!

Or reinstall IE on top of itself.....

Repair or Reinstall Internet Explorer6 and Outlook Express 6
http://www.theeldergeek.com/repair_reinstall_ie_and_oe_6.htm

Make sure when you run it with the following syntax....

start>run>ie6setup.exe /q

That skips the version check.....

Also,
I would start with the System File Checker...

Start>run>cmd.exe

sfc /purgecache

You WILL need the XP CD for this to complete...

Scannow sfc
