Help My IE6 Is Messed-up

Sun Dec 19, 2004 7:55 am

Ok im on the other computer, and whenever I try and log onto my one in my room I get a message saying:

Buffer Overrun Detected!

Program C:PROGRAM FILESINTERNET EXPLOREREXPLORER.EXE

A buffer Overrun has been detected which has corrupted the programs internal state.
The program cannot safely continue execution and must be terminated.

Can anyone please tell me whats happenned and how I can rectify the problem.
Ive tried reinstalling IE6 and doing a virus check and tried looking at the IE6 files but with no luck, Anyone know what the problem is?

I had this problem sometime ago...you need to download a patch from Microsoft to correct that. See

http://news.com.com/Buffer-overflow+bug+in+IE/2100-1001_3-214620.html

I think it is a virus, but I re-installed Windows, that fixed the problem whatever it was. If you want to re-install Windows, then you should back up all your important files.

Hope this helps...and good luck!

I'll chime in about Firefox as well. I use Internet Explorer 6 maybe once or twice a week on sites in which Firefox is not supported.
