    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 all.......at 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.

    :)
