    Faults and program crashes (5.5SP1)

    When I try to download a program I sometimes get the message IE caused a fault in wuv315is.dll. When I tried to download using Gozilla I got the message IE Explorer caused a fault in newdotnet2_109.dll. Everything was fine until I installed Money 2000 Deluxe Canadian Edition and a local program to access my bank online. During my morning sessdion I tried to install Cnet's catchup103 for getting updates. This cwas before I installed the two programs

    Re: Faults and program crashes (5.5SP1)

    If you've got a relatively fast connection, you might consider re-installing your browser. It's hard to say how your new program installation effected your current browser, or what can be done to fix it.

    The most stable version of I.E. I would recommend is 5.5SP1. 6 is out, but i'm still waiting for the dust to settle on it before I take the plunge. There may be some other loungers here who are more familiar with a 'newdotnet' error... but it's a new one on me! <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Hope that helps!

    Re: Faults and program crashes (5.5SP1)

    I really want to thank you for replying. I did a little more research on the error message. A file was in my windows folder called newdotnet2_109.dll. Upon examining the version information I found that this file was written by New Net Inc. This company sells domain names. I went to their web site and there was a button there asking if I wanted to download their active X control. I said no. What I think happened was that I went to a certain Web site via a URL on ZDnet to download a program. This file was downloaded to my computer without my knowledge or approval. I took over some of my winsock functions. That is why Gozilla which relies on winsock crashed. I think this is highly unethical. As the domain company has a web address they should be censured. However, I was unable to find a contact item via their site as they do not provide such a service. I am new to the lounge. Could you please either post this so other people will see this or advise me how to do it. I read a number of Woody's newsletters and have heard many favourable things about the lounge and its members. That is why I decided to give it a try. Thanks once again for your interest.

    To solve my problem I had to delete the file. Windows refused saying the file was in use. I therefore had to delete keys in the registry pertaining to this file. This seriously disabled winsock2. The solution provided by my ISP Tech department was to uninstall windows networking including the registry key for winsock2 and then to reinstall windows networking.

    Thanks for the detailed response, and the info!

    One of the great things about the lounge is that everything you post is available to the masses. Simply by putting the name of your 'problem file' into your post, it is likely that others will find it, and use your insight to resolve thier problem as it occurs. The lounge's purpose is to deliver a variety of problems to a variety of solutions providers, not just moderators, but others who may have had the problem once, and are willing to put forth thier knowledge to help others solve thiers.

    Ironically, this problem also presented itself over in the Win98 forum. You can take a look at that thread <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=98&Number=40640&page=&view= &sb=&o=&vc=1>Here.</A>

    On deletion of files 'in use' by Windows, generally rebooting to MS-Dos will allow you to delete them, but there's no guarantee that your problem will be solved this way. Removal and re-installation of Windows Networking is no picnic, and I wish you the best of luck!

    Lastly, Welcome to the Lounge! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
