When I try to open Internet Explorer I am receiving the following error:
Microsoft Visual C ++ Runtime Library
Program C:\program files\internet explorer\explorer.exe
A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the programs internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now terminate.
Can you please tell me how to fix this??

Re: Internet Explorer Problem - PLEASE Help!
I recommend running an anti-virus and anti-spyware program. In the case this does not work, the next solution is to reinstall Windows XP. This problem is associated with a computer possiblly corrupted with a virus or trojan.
Let me know if you need any suggestion on anti-virus and anti-spyware programs, or any questions about reinstalling Windows XP.

If you use Internet Explorer as your Web browser, chances are you have experienced, or will experience, popup script errors. Typically, a dialog box may appear stating "A Runtime Error has occurred. Do you wish to Debug?" or "Internet Explorer Script Error. An error has occurred in the script on line 1. Do you wish to continue running scripts on this page?" These errors can be distracting and interfere with your Web browsing experience. If you would like to stop receiving these error messages, you must modify your IE settings.
Open IE, select "Tools" and ten choose "Internet Options." The Internet Options dialog box will open. Click on the "Advanced" tab, scroll to the "Browsing" section and then select the "Disable Script Debugging" box.
Clear the "Display a notification about every script error" box under the same section if it has been selected. Click "Apply" and then choose "OK" to modify your IE settings. You will receive no more IE script error notifications. Hope this helps.
try the following steps , close Internet Explorer.
if you are using WINDOWS XP
click start>run, type in inetcpl.cpl , press enter
if you are using windows vista / windows 7
click start> in "search programs and files" type in inetcpl.cpl press enter
internet explorer properties will open up. go to the last tab which is Advanced.
Click on RESET
try uninstalling the last updates that you received before the problem occured however, I would recommend you update to ie 7 then to ie8 use windows or microsoft update to perform the updates.......as for outlook it should update from windows update (Microsoft Update) as well.
It would have been added to black-listed or restricted website in Internet Explorer Content Advisor by some user in your computer. ·Some malicious software programs would have been installed on your computer. ·Your computer might not have the latest version of Flash player, Shockwave player and Java Runtime installed on your computer.
I would suggest you to follow the troubleshooting steps below to help resolve your issue.
here is my advice : Just go to www.microsoft.com and download internet explorer again
and install it , then reboot your system . I'm sure that this will
solve the problem . any way , why don't you try other internet
communication softwares like ( firefox or google chrome) those both are
great also . I advice you to have more than one internet communication
software . I already have three just in case if one of them is
corrupted . I have ( Internet explorer and firefox and google chrome )
. just try the idea and you'll be satisfied with the result .
If that didn't help then try to check system for errors . such as registry errors . good luck .
