Runtime Error



This problem just started and it's driving me crazy! Every time I open IE6 I
get this message and closes my brower. This is the message I get:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!
Program: c:/Program Files/Internet Explorer/ieplore.exe

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

Please contact the application's support team for more information.

Like I said it's driving me crazy because I'm trying to work online and I
keep getting this and having to start all over.

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library.
Runtime Error!
Program: c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE
The application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an
unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.
Try uninstalling the Google toolbar using Control Panel-Add/Remove.

Another option:
Malware Removal:

Another option:
Another user receiving runtime errors fixed it by disabling McAfee's
Anti-Phishing filter.



I don't have a Google Toolbar and I tied the others and I'm still getting the
same problem. Any other options?

This may be caused by spyware/malware that's gotten installed on
your system. Use Ad-Aware, Windows Defender and/or Spybot Search & Destroy
to remove it.

Windows Defender
Good sites on how to install and use Spybot -

Also download a winsock repair tool, to have just in case cleaning up
anything found breaks it -

Winsock repair tools:
LSPFix- all versions of Windows
Winsock2 Fix- Win98, ME
LavaSoft- all versions of Windows-

More information here:

If no joy, in IE go to Tools...Internet Options...Advanced tab, Browsing
section, uncheck "Enable third-party browser extensions", click Apply, click
Okay, reboot. If that solves your problem, then more troubleshooting is
needed to find out exactly which program, or Browser Helper Object (BHO) is
causing this problem. You don't want to leave it at that, as some BHOs are
useful or necessary - like Adobe Acrobat for reading .pdf files or an
essential component of Norton AV.

If you have IE 6 SP-2 you can do this within the browser:

If all the above fails, then the problem could be something new that the
spyware cleaners above don't have in their databases yet. In that case....
