Have a problem: My windows explorer crashes on me all the time (I mean the file viewing tool). Explorer had caused an error in (unknown). Makes it a bitch to look at the files. Opera seems to be able to display them. So I decided to reinstall Win ME, but without formatting, to save my files. After the installation, I needed to upgrade to Internet Explorer 6 (windows update, you know), but that installation keeps failing. Says it can not install. Rebooted ten times, retried, etc... Nothing works. Oh yeah, the windows explorer still crashes. So now I have an unupgradable IE 5.5 and a crashing windows explorer. I know what you gonna say: get XP, get Linux,... I KNOW! But for now, I would just like to fix it in the shortest possible time, with format/reinstall being the very last option, since I have exams for the moment. Detail: when I press ctrl alt del, and I try to shut down the running processes, some stuff does not respond, like loadqm. Windows tells me it is not responding, and then I need to reafirm: yes, shut it down. Then sometimes it does. Any help is welcome. Edit: oh yeah, I managed to generate the same error on win 98 on another computer... could it be Spybot? It seems to be the only mutual program for the 2 PC's. Maybe those immunity options? I deinstalled them, but I can't find the ones protecting the homepage... where are those options?? Help. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Edit 2: Spybot seems to be doing no harm at all. In fact, version 1.3 gave me this information: Error during check!: Xabot (Ungültiger Datentyp für '') () DSO Exploit: Data source object exploit (Registry change, nothing done) HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0\1004!=W=3 Spybot then claims he fixed the problem, but in a scan just a few minutes later, he finds the same errors again. Poor little program, I really don't blame him, but I would like to get things fixed. Can anyone with computer knowledge tell me what this is and what to do? Side question: how did this happen?? I'm not a porn fanatic, I don't use file sharing programs, I have an up to date virus scanner, a firewall and I never open attachments of which I'm not sure where they've been. Thanks!
