help needed....please IE problem



Hi all

I am having a problem with IE.
It functions ok on any site I visit, except when I go on to windows update.

I get a message saying lexplore will now close.
The problem listed is - MSHTML.DLL

I haven't got a clue what this is or how to fix it:confused:

I'd be grateful of some help and advice:)


NOT necessarily.

This occurs in instances of IE<5.5 when visiting any webpage that uses frames where the right side frame calls a page from a remote domain.

If you are using Windows Me, Thamesider, this, not Gator is the cause of your problem.

Just download the latest version of IE, or swap to a better browser altogether ;-)



Thanks for the replies.

I do have ME and IE 5.5.

I have had gator spyware etc in the past, picked it up when visiting my old schools website of all places.

I did get rid of it least I thought I did:rolleyes:

This problem only occurs when going on to the microsoft website.

I want to install the latest updates and patches, and also IE 6, but can't as it shuts down as soon as it opens.

I finally got broadband 2 days ago, and with all virus's etc I thought I'd better make sure I was fully protected.



Thamesider - Can I suggest that you have a look at Mozilla Firefox?

I was having problems with IE (various) and somebody suggested I try Firefox. Won't go back to IE now.

Won't help with your IE prob, but, may be a good way to get round the problem.
