Iexplore causes an error in MSHTML.DLL

by Cleve / January 8, 2004 12:00 AM PST

When trying to access certain sites or links in some sites I get an open box that states "Iexplore has caused and error in MSHTML.DLL" When I close this box the program closes but my connection is still in service. I have run several virus programs (adaware,stinger, spybot, AVG but still have had no success in fixing the problem...Any suggestions?

Review and consider adding CWSHREDDER to that Parasite removal toolset.

Consider that supplying "certain sites or links in some sites" to the forum could be helpful.

Lexplore is a pretty persitant pest but i once managed to remove using a remover provided by its creator, mysearchnow.

Since then, i have experienced trouble with it on someone elses computer.

To remove it i uninstalled it from add or remove programs and delted any left over program files. (i can't remember what it installed itslef as)

After doing this i searched my registry keys for anything to do with lexplore or mysearchnow and deleted all keys that i found.

I booted to safe mode and ran avg antispyware to check for any infections still left.

After removing all traces of it manually, i managed to remove the the threat.

I would not advise this method though as randomly deleting registry keys is dangerous.

Good Luck,
