Sounds like you might have downloaded malware. Did you get it from www.skype.com ? or some other web site? Try downloading a new copy from www.skype.com (and nowhere else!)

Tip

A blank Web page is displayed when you start Internet Explorer 7.


Symptom:
loadTOCNode(1, 'symptoms'); When you start Windows Internet Explorer 7, your home page does not open. Instead, a blank Web page is displayed.

Additionally, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:
Line 56
Char:2
Error: Element not found
Code: 0
URL:http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2aspx

This problem typically occurs after you install Internet Explorer 7, after you install Windows, or after you reset Internet Explorer settings. This problem may occur only for certain users.

To have us fix this problem for you, go to the “Fix it for me” section. If you would rather fix this problem yourself, go to the “Let me fix it myself” section.
Cause:
This problem occurs if the Customize Your Settings Web page in Internet Explorer 7 is not loaded correctly or if the Customize Your Settings Web page opens with restricted security settings.
Fix it for me
To fix this problem automatically, click the Fix this problem link. Then click Run in the File Download dialog box, and follow the steps in this wizard.
Fix this problem
Microsoft Fix it 50065
Note: This wizard is temporarily in English only. However, the automatic fix also works for other language versions of Windows.

Note: If you are not on the computer that has the problem, you can save the automatic fix to a flash drive or to a CD, and then you can run it on the computer that has the problem.
Let me fix it myself
To resolve this problem, create and run a Skiprunonce.reg file for each user account that experiences the problem. If you would rather modify the registry directly, see the "Advanced users" section.

To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start a text editor, such as Notepad.
  2. Copy the following information, paste it into the text editor, and then save the file as Skiprunonce.reg:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

    "RunOnceHasShown"=dword:00000001

    "RunOnceComplete"=dword:00000001

  3. Exit the text editor.
  4. Double-click the Skiprunonce.reg file that you created in step 2.

    When you run the Skiprunonce.reg file, you will receive the following message:
    Are you sure you want to add the information in path of .reg file to the registry?
    Click Yes. Then you will receive the following message:
    Information in path of .reg file has been successfully entered into the registry.
Notes:
  • In Windows Vista, when non-administrator users try to run SkipRunOnce.reg they are prompted for an administrator password.
  • To run SkipRunOnce.reg for all users at the same time, modify SkipRunOnce.reg by replacing [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] with [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] and then running it as an administrator.

It is also important to remove the suspicious applications and programs in the computer to avoid Windows freezing. In this type of infection not only your Windows registry gets corrupted and needs massive repair but also there is virus based penetration in the Windows set up. In this situation it is recommended to conduct a virus scan as well.However, if your Windows freezes up, the best solution is to repair the computer registry.use registry cleaner reg in out

See the end of this message for details on invoking just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box. ************** Exception Text ************** System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Cannot anchor...


Not sure whether this is a Q.
To enable just in time (JIT) debugging, the config file for this application or machine (machine.config) must have the jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section. The application must also be compiled with debugging enabled. For example: <configuration> <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" /> </configuration> When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the machine rather than being handled by this dialog.
In VS the way to enable/disable that is: 1-On the "TOOLS" menu, click Options. 2-In the Options dialog box, select the Debugging folder. 3-In the Debugging folder, select the Just-In-Time page. 4-In the Enable Just-In-Time debugging of these types of code box, select or clear the relevant program types: Managed, Native, or Script. To disable Just-In-Time debugging, once it has been enabled, you must be running with Administrator privileges. Enabling Just-In-Time debugging sets a registry key, and Administrator privileges are required to change that key. 5-Click OK.
It has to be done by the developer and its his responsible to guide the application error reporting to the system event handlers. If this is an issue which occurs in a certain app, have to check for the .net version (specially in vista). Many 1.0 and 1.1 based apps give the problem. To install dotnet fw 1.1 on Vista will give an error. Most of the time caused by DEP (Data Execution Prevention). But the thing is some software forces the installation of .net framework (older versions). How ever Vista is packed with .net 3.0 and 2.0. Even if you allowed to install will not be able to uninstall 2.0 (possible to remove 3.0 though).
How to solve the installation issue: This issue is resolved in Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1, however you will need to use the following procedure to install both the .NET Framework and the Service Pack at the same time: Download Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable Package and Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 using links below: Dotnet Framework 1.1 Redest Dotnet Framework 1.1 SP1
Save both installations in the same directory Ensure that the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable Package is named dotnetfx.exe. If not, change its name to dotnetfx.exe. Ensure that Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 is named dotnetfxsp1.exe. If not, change its name to dotnetfxsp1.exe. Open command prompt as Administrator, and change to the directory where the two installations are saved. Run the following commands using the order shown below dotnetfx.exe /c:"msiexec.exe /a netfx.msi TARGETDIR=C:dotnet" dotnetfxsp1.exe /Xp:C:dotnet etfxsp.msp msiexec.exe /a c:dotnet etfx.msi /p c:dotnet etfxsp.msp Install both Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1 and Service Pack 1 by running C:dotnet etfx.msi
The systems must be backed up before trying this specially the system state. How ever the keys can be repaid in a damage This thread will also be helpful http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2007/03/26/how-to-repair-the-net-framework-2-0-and-3-0-on-windows-vista.aspx...
