I know this isn't site related but I can't find anyone that knows how to fix this. Was wondering if anyone here knows how.

I keep getting an error message while using windows explorer = "Iexplore has caused an error in USER.EXE. Iexplore will now close."

I downloaded Spybot and used it and I also tried repairing Internet Explorer. This error message keeps irritating the he11 out of me. Please Help.

Assuming you might have tried this, as I always do, but:

Plug the whole error message into Google, and you will get dozens of explanations of varying quality, one of which will no doubt suit your problem.

Horses for courses. There could be any number of reasons to do with conflicts or damage or corruption of the file itself.

Try a look at the website: www....#microsoft.com

Yes, it *is* a legitimate URL...



Almost enough to make me want to dig out my old C64...

I'm sorry, but Microsoft bashing is pointless and unjustified.

If I can find no immediate solution to a problem like this (since I'm lazy), I just say f0rk it, and ignore it. It eventually goes away...weeks later...after a few good defrags and scandisks

Could you do me a favour? could you look at the spelling of the error? sounds funny I know but I had a real problem with a bit of spyware called IexpIore, When you glance at it you miss it. Sounds like what I had.

See what's going on in your registry. A lot of times things shove themselves in there and autorun without you even knowing it. Things like tinybar, hotbar, intelligent explorer etc etc leech themselves onto IE and if one of this little bastards got in it is highly possible that you could be getting errors in IE. Also if that's not it, try putting booting from your windows cd and picking the file repair. Just change your boot order in the setup to CD first.

doing a search in google for user.exe of the first few that came up was a link to MS's site that gives a fix for it

support.microsoft.com...

So it's pointless & unjustified to continue charging Bill Gates for such blatant acts of Invasion of Privacy as his software continues to make use of your personal information *without the user's permission*?...

Masked Avatar is right, in such case, goolge ofter turn out to be your best friend. If you dabble a lot with microsoft website, you know it can a lot of time to find the fix for your problem.

If you use XP, there's a nice reparation option that you can reach by poping in your CD and booting with it.

For general registry bug, the 'WindowsDoctor' of Norton SystemsWorks works like a charm.

But remember (if no hardware problem are involved), there's nothing that formating and re-installing can't fix.

One thing I've picked up over the years is that when you buy a new computer, especially if it comes from a large company like Dell or Gateway etc, you should uninstall all the garbage that they throw in with your machine, and set it up to be optimized for your use. After this is done (but before you install anything supplemental) use Symantec's Ghost program to creat an image of your hard drive. You can do this onto a couple of CD's (PM me for directions if needed). That will be very helpful because that way when things get screwed up on your system, which happens all the time, you will be able to just go back to that image with all your system files working perfectly. Keep in mind, this isn't really meant for data purposes, so if you create an image and then download 10gig of mp3's those aren't going to be there. The purpose of ghosting is to be able to literally return the computer to the state it began in, as though nothing ever changed. It's extremely effective for me at work.

(Partition your HD, keep system files on C, data on D, and you'll be good to go)
I do it at work at least once a year and my system runs like a charm.

Djarums gived some good advice, but another one would be : don't buy crappy computer like Dell, Gateway, Emachine, Compaq/HP, etc...
Unless you go for a specific model, that you reviewed all the spec and are ok with it.

Custom built PCs are the way to go. If you can't build it, just get someone do it for you.

If you can't get IE fixed with the instructions on the sites mentioned in prior post,and IE won't repair itself,you will have to go to microsoft's download site and re-install it from there.
Microsoft.com/downloads
get rid of the spyware,that is most likely causing your problem,remove it from you install new software in control panel,go to a site on the web with further instructions on how to be rid of it,there are many.
