    'Navcancel' - IE6 - AOL 8

    Hi,

    Not sure whether this comes under Win98SE or IE6 so I will start here.

    I did a clean install of Win98SE on a Dell XPS-R450 desktop several months ago, did windows and officeupdates (O2K), installed AOL 8.0 as it's one of the ISP's I use.

    Now every time I attempt to use the AOL browser the following error pops up as preface to the web address entered. But when I switch to IE I can access the internet just fine. Is this some Microsoft sabotage or what? Any workarounds? Short of reinstalling IE, AOL tech support had nothing to suggest.

    res://C:WINDOWSSYSTEMSHDOCLC.DLL/navcancl.htm

    Your help would be much appreciated.

    William,
    Apparently this is a coding error in the shdoclc.dll file that has been around for a while. The error causes a "patch overrun vulnerability". You can read about it at http://members.aol.com/ojatex/showdoc.htm and there is a link to a fix for it at the bottom of the page. It all boiled down to a letter x being used instead of an a, in the depths of the code. <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
