Q: Solved: An Error Has Occured In Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer will now close - HIJACK

I have been whacking my head against the wall. I have removed all entries that Ad-Ware can find. I have the most recent version of Adrware SE and the most recent definition files.

I keep getting "An Error Has Occurred in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer will now close." Any help would be appreciated tremendously. Here is my hijak log:

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi.. I don't know if this is the right section, please correct me if it's wrong. Here is the problem:

My Internet Explorer 7 gives the error: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". I cannot complete the troubleshooting. It states that there might be a problem with my firewall settings. But my Firefox works perfectly on this computer. I have completed all the steps given in this link. However, it didn't work. I cannot run MSN right now because of this. And this is not a problem that developed recently, on this computer I have never managed to run Internet Explorer.

And another point to mention: Whenever I try to visit a site via IE7, before giving "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error, on the status-bar I see a warning for a second such that a "dns error" or something.

I have also searched this forum for this, I have found some posts consisting HJT logs but could not reached a solution for my problem. Could you please help? Thank you.

Hi guys

I hope that you can help me with a annoying problem I have.
A portion of IE is open in the left top corner of my screen, size (about 5 X 5cm). Unfortunately I cannot close it as the close, full screen, and minimize buttons are not on the screen. How do I close it or get rid of it as seems seems to be active.
If I right click on the screen and go to google sidewiki I get the IE script error as per attachment.

Kind regards

OK, I am running windows vista on an acer notebook. I just finished cleaning my system of trojans and such from my son downloading music.

I tried going to a different website and a box pops up saying that " www.msn.com is unavailable at this time"... or whatever site I'm trying to go to. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Ctrl+Alt+Del and “End Task” the program in Task Manager >Application. I would Reboot after you get things back to normal. Evidently a download is locking something in, so there might be more than one application to end.

Hi,

Your attached file produces only an error message for me-

I think you want to take a screenshot of the issue, in that case, you need to open MS Paint after pressing the Print Screen button on the keyboard while you are looking at the issue you want to take a shot of.... Hit the Edit tab at the top of the window in Paint program, then hit Edit again, and this time hit Paste and the file should display on screen.... then, save the file as a .jpg file and then try again to attach it to a new reply.

Hello, I have a brand new dell. Less then 2 days old. Computer is running great, super fast. But i already am running into a small problem. When i close internet explorer after visiting a simple website like yahoo or google it closes fine. But when i close a site that contains a flash game or shockwave game an error message pops up. With the windows report box. It dosn't give any info about the error, just that it should be reported. Any Glue? It's so hard to uninstall IE in XP, and re-install won't work either. Thanks in advance! ~Jordan~

Hello everyone and thank you for participating in this wonderful site.

My computer is a Pentium 4, 2.80 GHz, Running Windows XP Proffessional Version 2002 Service Pack 2.
The problem I'm writing about has been there for about a year. All in all it's the same prolem ever since, but every once in a while some detail changes, like a new error message.
Every about 5-15 minutes the Start Menu Taskbar and the desktop icons disappear (Explorer crushes). Most of the times they reappear shortly after, but sometimes they don't, and then I use task manager to run explorer and then they reappear. Yet, sometimes the computer stucks altogether, and I have to restart. In addition to that, many popups open when I surfe the web using Internet Explorer. The popup changes every few days, but in between it's always the same one.
Another point is that while the crushing of explorer can occur anytime, it most often occurs while I open or close Internet Explorer windows.

Sometimes I get an error message, and as I said, they change from time to time. But still, here are 2:

rundll32.exe - Application Error

When I close out Internet Explorer and i return to my desktop I get a program called "Purity Scan" saying that it is closing and then states that it can't close. I don't know what "purity scan" is but I then have to manual say "end now"

Hi... I recently had my Internet explorer hijacked. I had all kinds of things added to my browser (new home page, sleazy search

page,sleazy favorites among lots of other things...it even made my home page a bogus warning about having my privacy completely

compromised) I went offline and did the following ... virus check, hijack this, and spybot(after a long overdue update). I had hijack this

correct the most obvious sex related entries. Spybot located several entries for "coolwwwsearch" (all were related to Internet Explorer).

I had it correct these entries. The corrections didn't do anything. When I went online I was still hijacked. I decided to do a system

restore and this solved my problem. All signs of a hijacking disappeared. After this I downloaded all the appropriate patches from

Microsoft. I ran hijack this and the log seems to be normal (see below). However I decided to run Spybot again and it found the entries

for coolwwwsearch again (see below). Are these entries still valid? They say "registry change, nothing done". Is that a reference to the

previous state changes made by system restore. My system is working fine. Should I have Spybot correct them again. Is spybot making

an error related to system restore? Should I uninstall Spybot and reinstall? Please help I want to make sure my system is virus and

hijack free. I haven't had any problems for a whole year. One foul click ruined my run! Any info is appreciated.

So I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I recently hooked my computer up to my TV with a VGA cable and tried out IE on the TV screen for a few minutes to see what it looked like. Then I moved it back onto my screen and ever since then I've been trying to figure out how to close it. When I try to close it it just makes a bell noise and although I can open and close tabs, I can't close the original tab even when others are open. I'm getting really pissed off. I usually use Firefox but I have it optimized for my netbook and I had to use IE to drag over onto the other screen so I just want to get this program off my screen and probably off my computer next.

EDIT: Also I don't know what this means, but I'm running Windows 7 and I just noticed that when I scroll over the IE icon at the bottom it shows each tab open, but I have 3 tabs open and it's only showing the two that will close. The other doesn't show up.

This is a problem as i loose what ever info i have at the time and generally just ticks me off.

I have been searching the internet for information on what is happening and have been advised to do the following:

more often than not it happens just as a site is loading (in the above case CBSsportsline) but not always and on many different sites.

Sometimes if I type a URL into the address bar and press 'go' nothing happens yet I can reach the same site through my favorites, on other occasions a site will load yet clicking on links has no effect.

Would this all be part of the same problem?

I cannot close internet explorer or any tabs. I am pretty sure its to do with the permissions, and I changed them in the security tab you can get to the properties, I even took ownership of the program and I tried running it as administrator but still no dice.

Could it be something in the registry changed?

I would immediately get the "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" window after clicking on the icon to open the IE app. I installed IE7 hoping that the problem was isolated to v6, but the same problem happens with IE7 as well. I ran DDS per the Preparation Guide. Below are the results of the DDS.txt file. The Prep Guide also instructed to attach the Attach.txt file in zipped format, which I have done. Any help with this is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:IE6 or IE7 won't open - keep getting "Internet Explorer needs to close" msg

I did not get a response in about a week (I guess there must be an overload of requests out there). I took it upon myself to perform a restore from a previous state of about 1 month ago. So far, it seems to have alleviated the problem, so I think this topic can be closed. Thanks to those that viewed my post. Even though I didn't get a reply to this post, I appreciate the help that all the experts on here are willing to provide. Keep up the good work.

Whenever I click on a link or fav. (or ironically, the windows update website) in IE 6, I get an error message saying, "Internet explorer has encountered a problem and has to shutdown." Then it it gives me the option to send an error report. It never gives me a solution. When I click on the report details it says:
AppName:iexplore.exe
App.Ver.:6.0.2800.1106
ModName:OLEAUT32.dll
ModVer: 3.50.5016.0
Offset:00011d93

How do I fix this?! Someone PLEASE help me!!!!!
 

A:Internet Explorer has an exception and will have to close down...

Try reinstalling IE6
or
(Assuming Windows XP) Start - Run

In the dialogue box type

sfc /scannow

Press Enter. Note the space between sfc and /scannow

This runs system file checker, and will replace any damaged files.

When I am at a web page in IE, and try to "X" out - the page just stays there - can't close. I do a ctrl-alt-del and note that my cpu usage is 100% - (also get little green box on taskbar indicating cpu use at 100%). Looking at what is using up the cpu, it appears to be System. What's the problem? All works ok in MSN or Netscape - just IE 6.0 Should I re-load IE 6.0? - is that the problem? Any help would be appreciated, I'm going nuts over this one!
Thanks
