    ie 5.5 & oe 5.5 - 'file/save as' and right click (5.5)

    I'm using ie 5.5 sp2 with w95 - a few days ago the "file/save as" and also
    the right click context menu "save picture" stopped working.. Sometime
    the computer hangs, other times I get error messages telling me that IE will
    be closed, etc.

    Below are some of the error messages:

    IEXPLORE caused an invalid page fault in
    module <unknown> at 0000:c0850000.

    attempting the right click context menu "save picture" sometime yields the
    following error message:

    Could not complete operation due to error 8007ffff.

    I do not know if the problem was caused by the few daily crashes that I
    experience -- causing a reboot and running of scandisk to correct errors, or
    if it happened after installing software. I often install and uninstall
    shareware. I thought that possibly that
    the problem occurred after installing Reget-deluxe-ver-3.2-build-158 so I
    uninstalled it and manually removed registry entries via regedit. I still
    have the same problem.

    I tried the control panel's add/remove IE repair feature to repair IE 5.5
    but the problem was not fixed.

    Also, I tried to reinstall IE 5.5 from an both my saved downloaded
    installation files and also from an AOL CD containing IE 5.5 but received an
    error message that I was missing files and needed to go to the internet for
    the installation (I know that I have the complete package because that is
    what I originally used to install IE 5.5. I also tried the SP2 installation
    package but received the same error.

    I really do not want to uninsall IE 5.5 and reinstall 4.01 for the for the
    quick launch bar, etc. and then install 5.5 on top. I am fear that I might
    have a problem in the re-installation and also do not want to have to
    re-install all settings (or export/import registry keys, etc.).

    I don't really know if IE5.5 alone is malfunctioning or a system Windows
    system file became corrupted. I can't reinstall windows without reformatting
    the disk drive and using the computer manufacturer's quick restore disk.
    While I do have CAB file on my drive, if I knew of a particular file that
    needs replacement, I could search through those files and merely replace the
    defective file.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


    P.S. I just noticed that oe "file/save as" also does not work and forces a
    closing of oe. The oe is ver. 5.50

    Re: ie 5.5 & oe 5.5 - 'file/save as' and right click (5.5)

    That's quite a quandry... I've had similiar problems in the past, and had to re-format my entire system and start from scratch.

    Believe it or not, this may prove to be a blessing. If you're not in the habit of backing up your system and registry prior to installing any new software, effectively re-building the system might prove useful, as it will clear out the miscellaneous junk that regular installation/uninstallation of shareware leaves behind. Windows, (All Versions) is a nutorious pack-rat, removing programs, no matter how thorough, never seems to erase all traces, and can sometimes effect your system, much in the way it has done here.

    If removing I.E. and re-installing, or attempting a Fix doesn't work, you may either use Netscape, <img src=/S/puke.gif border=0 alt=puke width=60 height=15> and try to live with it, or rebuild the system from scratch. The thing about I.E. is that it's so engrained in the operating system, that problems like this may be precursors to more tragic events which might render everything in-operable.

    I hate to be the purveyor of doom here, but in my experience, rebuilding everything, then making solid backups is the best way to go. If any others feel otherwise, I hope they will post their feedback.
