Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
After starting my pc I click on Internet Explorer and nothing happens. After several attempts it starts and works normally. When I try to shut down the pc I get a message ""End program iexplore.exe" This program is not responding. After waiting for it to try, the "End Now" button pops up, I click on it and we go through the cycle again. Eventually, after what seems like as many cycles as it took to start IE, the machine shuts itself down. This is a real pain. I have Registry Mechanic installed and it comes up with one persistent problem that it cannot repair - HKEY-CLASSES-ROOTCLSID...lot of numbers...Inprocserver32.
Another hassle is that in "Set program access and defaults" "Custom" is always checked in the radio button even after I have previously set it to "Microsoft"
Are these problems related and can anyone advise? Thanks.
OEM pc, AMD Sempron 2600 XP Home SP2, 1 Gig RAM
You can junk the IE for an extremely popular browser called Mozilla Firefox. Next time IE is up and running download firefox at :
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ look for the DOWNLOAD button.
you will be asking yourself "why haven't I done this long ago?"
