Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Yep. See this article: http://ask-leo.com/iexploreexe_has_generated_an_error_now_what.html
Yep, I found scannow kept stopping and asking for the cd but clicking 'retry' each time and the scan progressed. After many stops (maybe 10+ mins)the scanbar reached 100% and that was it...no ok message . Assume no problems found ?!
Ok, i run sfc, but the Command Prompt window appears and immediately disappears... What now? Is there any tool in the web for checking the File System???
Open up a separate command prompt window, and then type the SFC command in there.
Will this have affect to the Windows File System ONLY? I mean, will it maybe be important to reinstall some of my programs?
The System File Checker only checks files that are part of Windows. Other programs are not checked.
Help, my Folder Options in the Tools menu of Windows Explorer has disappeared.
I am using WinXP. This has occurred before and I got the remedy from Comp Active mag but I seem to have lost it.
Can anyone please help me to restore this option. I remember it was quite simple really!!
Thank you for all the advise you give it's so helpful and welcomed. I tried to do 'press Start, Run, and then type in SFC', and I could see the black DOS box flicker on and then back off so fast it would make your head spin. I tried once more after 10 mins. and it was the same. Any suggestions please?

While your site was a help it didn't fix my problem. Everything refers to the installation of Win Inst 3.1 but no one every mentioned going into Control Panel, Adm. Tools, Dbl Clicking Services, going down to Windows Installer, make sure it's in manuel and then in the upper left corner of you screen click on Start. Now it works.
