More info : Is it Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer.
Reload windows ME over the top of your current install if it is the Windows Explorer that is having errrors, or you could load the latest service pack from microsoft.
If it is Iexplorer install trhe latest version from a computer magazine CD or some other source.
What is the EXACT error message.
Good luck (:-|

If the error is something along the lines of ?Explorer has caused an error in?? , then the error is in the actual Windows OS. You need to find out what the second part of the error is. If it is Wsock32.dll it may be the W95.Hybris.gen virus. You can find out more about that and other viruses at www.sarc.com. If it is another file it is causing an error in it may be something else. The best way to make sure it is the OS causing the errors and not a program is to boot into Safe Mode. You can do this by restarting the system and tapping the F8 key on the keyboard as the system is booting. When you see a DOS screen that says ?Windows ME Startup Menu? hit 3 on the keyboard and then hit Enter. This will boot you to Safe Mode. If you getthe error there it is Windows that is causing the error and your best bet is to Format and Reload. If the error is gone it may be something that is loading as the system is booting up. You can remove things that load as the system boots by clicking on Start+Run and then typing in MSCONFIG. Go to the Startup tab and you will see most of the stuff that loads as you boot into Windows. Take some stuff out, hit OK and reboot. If the error is still there go back to Safe Mode and take out some more. When the error goes away you know you found the cause.
Hope this helps,
Sid
