OK, everytime I try clicking on IE6 it brings up this error saying "The application fialed to initialized properly (0xc0000005) click on OK to terminate the application." The title of the error is "iexplore.exe - Application Error". So is there anyway to repair IE6? oh and is there anyway to uninstall it?
btw I had the same problem with all my other apps/games so I used my Norton Antivirus2003 to scan for viruses and it did help and cleared all the problems up except my IE6 problem. Any chance the "Trojan Horse" virus could be the problem? cause thats the only virus my scanner couldn't repair/delete so its quarantied right now.
I would tend to think that your problem lies in an area that a repair or a reinstallation of the brower wouldn't correct. For instance, you mentioned that you are able to access the sites for a while after a format and reinstall, but then you "lose" them again.
Have you tried customizing the History option so that I.E. is forced to re-download fresh versions of the pages each time the browser is launched? One setting would be under the Temporary Internet files/Settings button in Internet Options, and the other would be to change the History folder to one day or less when retaining the web page content.
You also might be looking at a router port issue, instead of something that is specifically due to the browser, since this is happening within two operating systems. Perhaps installing new firmware for the router and new drivers for the cable modem, and afterwards, redoing the router port settings could help.
You could also try forcing your cable modem to re-synchronize, just in case the ISP is not consistently refreshing the pages on their server. Normally, this is done just by cutting the modem off for five minutes or so, and then turning it back on.
The only other things I can think of is that an element of Systemworks 2003 is blocking the sites, or you keep sustaining some kind of ActiveX Control damage due to a program installation (Windows/Downloaded Program Files). Or perhaps you keep getting some kind of spyware loaded on the system from Kazaa++. That might require doing some scanning with Spybot or Adaware.
Here's an I.E. 6 Configuration page that you might find useful:
I tried all that, it sees the websites it tries to open them. then nothing times out. it is something with the software. this is the longest it ran til i did a multiplay game of BF1942 then it denied me access again.
instead of refomatting again for the sixteenth time. i would like to find what was altered and change it back.
but i have no clue what to look for.
It is pinging them, but it would have to to even attempt to open the page it looks like on its return is when its being blocked out. so it says on the bottom of the screen "finding www.klipsch.com then opening www.klipsch.com" and then it just sits and sits til it times out with the message:

and thats where i am stuck... i tried the ping, it works. havent done the tracert yet. as im going to give the vm idea a try and get to bed as i just got back in from being out of town.
and i know i wont sleep til i at least try the microsoft vm try.at the min. :smile:
Oh one more thing. i did called the isp. and seems im the only one with this problem. not surprising considering im in the middle of no where with people who think an any key exists. They say it is working fine. considering im running alot faster than im paying for? No im not the cause of the faster speed im thinking fluke... i didnt wanna push the issue. every place else i surf works. just not those three sites.
