    dentalgal :

    No need to shout. Exactly what error message are you getting ?

    If you have a question for the poster, use the reply button not a "Shout-out" Shout Outs can dissapear in the matter of a couple hours.

    Cheers

    Default Hey

    Hi,

    Check this out: http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;190536

    Or try repairing Internet Explorer..........type msinfo32 into Run, Ok.

    Go to tools on the system information window & select Internet Explorer
    Repair Tool->choose the repair option.

    Or the same thing another way. Go to the Control Panel to Add/Remove Programs and select Internet Explorer. Then tag that you want to repair it rather than remove or downgrade it and hit Ok.

    Or if that doesn't work this will.
    I found that the problem is, some web pages are being displayed in 16 million colours, typical ATI software is defaulting to 32 million, some how this is causing a fault in the MACXW4.DRV. Set your display to 16 million and you wont have the a problem again. If you go to "display properties/settings/advanced/adapter you will find the macxw4.drv referenced. And go in there and try lowering your performance "hardware accelerator" first. Then see if it clears up. Or if that all out false To solve you GPF with turning your accelerator to NONE.
    Let me know if this works for you!
    Compaq,Windows XP,Internet Explorer,version 6.0.29, 128-bit,Outlook Express,version 6.00.29.
