  1. hello,

    I have a friend, that had a trouble with ie, and the same error comes up in
    IE8 I thought by upgrading it, would cure the problem.
    Didn't work.

    Gives the unexpected error and will close. Module unknown
    Offset 0069006d

    Windows xp,
    IE 8

    I thought it might have a repair feature, all I see is an uninstall for 8?


    thanks Bruce

  3. Upgrading in hopes of fixing an existing problem is seldom a wise idea.

    In IE8 or IE7...

    1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode? To start
    IE in No Add-ons mode:

    => Right-click on the blue IE desktop icon and select Start without
    Add-ons; or

    => Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
    Explorer (No add-ons).

    Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer’s (No Add-ons) Mode:

    2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)? <= Read before using!

    3. Does the behavior persist if you boot into Safe Mode with Networking?
    [Careful! Only remain in Safe Mode just long enough to test!]

    If these procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting
    this isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
    independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.

  4. At least I have one fixed with your help one of them so far.
    Stated with the add-ons, seems it was the google tool bar things.
    so far this one is working well.
    thanks guys really appreciate the help. I know the ones I try to help
    appreciate it, thanks again

  5. YW & thanks for your feedback. The user may find that Google Toolbar 6 does
    NOT cause such problems.

  6. Well doubt he uses it anyways, and will notice it is gone.
    Actually I try get people not to install the extra tool bars.
    Always find they can cause more problems then they are worth,
    thanks again
