IE must be shut down. We're are sorry. Send report? This is what I randomly get sufing the web and even in windows exployer once. The details are md:msvcrt.dll is the culprit. Something about visual c++. I run IE6 all service packs and 98 all service packs plus the missing vdx installed. I just upgraded a tiny 2 gig too this 20.4 cavier so 98 and IE6 are fresh. I did updade the dll, no luck. It just randomly happens. I turned off active desktop that was crashing constantly and had a failed install of that massive office 2000 update. Other than that msvcrt.dll is used by ashampoo recording suite and I deleted it after backing too floppy. Still get the error. Nothing specific at microsoft that I could find yet about msvcrt.dll causing the must shut down thing. Alot about it in visual studio which I'm unaware of using. I'm new here but it's my favorite download/tweak site. Excellent selection. I run an ancient (2000)emachines 333cs micro atx upgraded too an overclocked K6 2+ 550 to 601.35, 256ram, 20g Caviar 7200, ATI rage IIC onboard, crystal 3d and 400w power. Old but still very useable, just upgraded all that last month. Any help or insight appreciated, nice to me ya.
