    Hey,
    my computer crashed or something while I was surfing.
    I boot & discovered that after I press on the iexplorer icon the prog. loads & immediatly stuck.
    I tried 2 download again sp2 & install it but it didn't help.
    any suggestion ?
    (& no, i don't want 2 install Firefox)
    Thx.

    Edit:
    I have Kaspersky - didn't find anything, nor did Ad-aware.

    Just to rule out a hardware problem. Since you did not mention other access/nonaccess to other software other than IE. Load another browser. I suggest Opera. Or tell if other software that depends on IE functions. Like a FT client or Windows Media Player etc. works.

    peat moss - tried the options from the link & I didn't help.
    I tried removing ie from add/remove progz & even deleted the ie directory.
    I downloaded & installed sp2.
    I even tried download ie7 beta.
    all same result - stuck. after i press on the ie icon, the process iexplorer.exe is 100% & i have 2 close the process from the task manager.
    I checked with kaspersky & ad-aware - got nothing.
    I can open other progz like media player. In the meantime I'm using firefox, but I would like 2 return to ie.
    Thanx.

    It has to be a malware problem then or you used a spyware or trojan remover to fix a problem you had ?


    Don't mean to funny but I thought your Thread title was IE6 "Sucks"

    Ah I know what you mean if you like something you want it back . If Firefox works tho you don't have a problem with the net its your short cut to IE6 .


    You probably should n't have deleted the IE folder but that's just frustration on your part . You'll get it sorted tho ,or if all else fails just format and reinstall Windows , something is screwy tho hope you get it sorted .


    I'm racking my brain here trying to solve this dilemma ,all I think is either Winsock repair or System File Checker (SFC ) .

    How about that one thats like IE6 , Maxthon ? Or better yet just reformat and reinstall problem solved .

    All that because he doesn't want to switch to something better!
    But a format will surely solve the problem
