Hi Jay,

If you have Google Toolbar, try uninstalling and then reinstalling it.

See this link for futher diagnosis:

After installing the Toolbar, I receive a Runtime error when I try to open
Internet Explorer.

I do not have Google Toolbar. Also, it is NOT Internet Explorer I am having
the problem with, but Windows Explorer.

Thanks for your efforts though.

Hi Jay,

*Note that Windows Explorer loads the add-ons added to Internet Explorer.*

Two more options:

1. Isolate the problem by disabling Browser Helper Objects one at a time.
You can use one of the following tools:

a. BHODemon http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3550.html
b. ToolbarCop http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4126.html

2. Isolate the problem by disabling third-party shell extensions (one of
them may be causing the problem) one at a time. ShellExView is a tool that
can help you in this regard.

hahaha... Thanks a lot. It was a program called Free Download Manager that
I had been using for several months. Is it possible to load this program
again and have it work properly or will this happen again?

Thanks for your help.

May our Lord Jesus Christ Bless you!

Excellent, Jay! Was that a shell extension or a BHO?

Perhaps reinstalling the problem would help. If not, look for an alternate
download manager program.

Jay:
This turned out to be the exact program that was fouling up my computer,
too. Good for you - you were the person that identified it first for me. We
both should thank Ramesh Srinivasan for leading the way. I learned alot by
this exercise.

I wish you the best that The Lord Jesus will give - "Eternal Life".

Remesh,

I was scanning for my potential solution and saw your string. I have the
same message, only it comes up on XP. Specifically, when I am logged in and
have IE open, if my wife switches users and then tries to access anything
other than Outlook, she receives the message. If she then switches back to
me, closes out my IE and then goes back to her login, she is fine. I have
Professional 2003.

I did have google toolbar, uninstalled, and the problem persists. Would I
benefit from using the BHODemon or ToolbarCop tools you previously mentioned,
or is this specifically related to IE. I have IE 6.0 installed currently
