Explorer Error in Win ME

By randerson7 ·
The desktop goes white and the error reported is "Explorer has caused an error in Browseui.dll". I can't open folders or right click. I know that I can boot from an emergency startup disk, but I can't create one nor can I find one that works. I have tried, get DOS error. I have recovery disks, but they will overwrite folders. I want to save all files. Please advise me how to boot and repair using scanreg /fix.

To run the scanreg /fix you will need the Windows ME start up disk
To resolve the issue, run the Registry Scan utility:
Restart your computer using the Windows Me emergency startup disk.
Use the arrow key on your keyboard to select Start Computer Without CD-ROM Support, and then press ENTER.
At the prompt type scanreg /fix, and then press ENTER.
After the ScanReg process is complete, restart your computer.
The Registry Scan utility finds and removes corrupted registry entries and system files. Those files are then replaced with a working copy of the files.

Where can I get Emergency Start Up disk?

3 ways to get a Me start-up disk:

Copy one that came with a full version of Me.

Create one on a PC running Me:
Control Panel
Add/Remove programs
Startup Disk

Download 1 of the start-up disk images from the links at either:
www.bootdisk.com
www.madboot.com

If you can boot into safe mode, you might want to try running system file checker.
SFC from the run box on the start menu.
It will scan your PC for missing or corrupt Windows system files.

Sometimes adware causes explorer to fatal error. You should also try running adware removal software to eliminate the possibility of adware causing your problem.

What version of Internet Explorer are you running? Open IE click on help in the toolbar, then "about".
I had this same problem when I upgraded to IE6. I rolled it back to 5.5 and it corrected the error.
