    IE 5.5 Exception errors (5.5)

    After I dial up my ISP I start IE but it doesn't connect. It gives the standard can't find page. Then it crashes giving some exception error. After that attempting to open it again immediately gives an exception error.

    The same basic problem happens with my Eudora e-mail program.

    Any ideas what might be the cause?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    It depends on just WHAT exception error you are getting. I assume you meant the dreaded BSOD. ( Blue Screen of Death )

    There is a good list of the most common errors and what to look for to resolve them at BSOD

    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!

    Can you give us the number of the exception error(s) - or is it unspecified? Which Operating System are you running?

    Not the BSOD. IE 5.5 just closes.

    I'm running Win98 and recently upgraded to 98SE.

    All this happened after a computer crash when I inadvertantly deleted the USB stuff while trying to install a new piece of USB hardware.

    Re: IE 5.5 Exception errors (5.5)--Problem Fixed.

    Problem solved. It was in the winsock file. It was corrupted. Once fixed all worked fine.
    Thanks.
