IE error message when opening internet home page

Starting this morning, everytime I logon to the internet -- we have DSL -- by the time the home page is up, I get an error. The error reads "Iexplore has caused an error in URLMON.DLL" The only option is to close the error box, which then closes the internet connection. What's the deal? Any suggestions? Thanks for any help!

http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6141-0.html?forumID=8&threadID=13453&start=0 was another discussion about that. Sadly, they lead off with an error message that was incorrect so the response are slightly off too, but the basics are there.

I think it's a WEB PAGE HIJACKER so I'll supply information about that.

Parasite removal programs.

http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6132-0.html?forumID=32&threadID=1313&start=0 notes the five scanning tools and removal tools that are fairly safe. If one does encounter an issue, its always been damage done by the MALWARE. The most common issue being Layered Service Provider replacement which you can use LSPFIX (Hint: use http://www.google.com to find).

The thread has follow on discussions about new links if you don't want to use Google to find an item.

Bob

PS. All the tools are free.

When I try to open my "Internet Explorer" main page, the message appears "Ixplore has caused an error in
URLMON.DLL and will now close. When you click on the close button the page closes. Everytime you try to open "Internet Explorer", this error message appears and you have to close the page. Can someone help? Thank you!

1. Perhaps one or more of the twelve files listed in the article [Q281679], may be missing, damaged, or improperly registered. Other files are: Dispex.dll (IE6SP1v5.6.0.6626); Vbscript.dll; Scrrun.dll; Jscript.dll; Olepro32.dll; Vbscript.dll; Rsabase.dll; Msscript.ocx; Cachevu.dll; and Iepeers.dll. Note: The last two or three are not default Win98 files and may not be on your system. If one is not, you'll simply get an error that the file name is invalid -- don't worry about it. FWIW, you may also opt for using the "[urlhttp://mvps.org/sramesh2k/IEFIX.htm]IEFix Utility" which can be downloaded from this site.

2. It may be to your advantage to download and install the Win98/IE6SP1 update explained in the article [Q259737] for the files, Asycfilt.dll (v2.40.4515); Oleaut32.dll (ditto); Olepro32.dll (ditto); and Stdole2.tlb (v5.0.4515).

3. If you are unable to connect to any secure sites and the Cipher Strength: entry reflects "0 Bit" (click Help, About Internet Explorer), apply the fix explained in (Q261328). Also review the article, "Cannot Gain Access to Certain Secure Web Sites (Q246725)."
