IE4 Corruption

By disguises ·
On several occasions, I have seen the IE4 browser on NT-based computers become corrupted for no obvious reason - no system changes having been made, etc. The only solutions I have found are (a) completely rebuild the user profile and laboriously recreate Outlook and printer connections along with desktop settings, or preferably (b) upgrade to IE5 which "fixes" the corruption. However, I want to know the root cause as even with IE5 the browser can become unusable but at least this version offers a repair option. Any suggestions? - all affected PCs are running up-to-date A/V software and are able to browse intranet / Internet resources with Netscape Navigator if installed when IE corruption has occurred.

IE4 Corruption

This programming bug is one of many hundreds that were discovered in IE4 - so I wouldn't sleep over it as soon we will be using IE6 with some more bugs to fix.

With 1000's of line of codes and at least 20 licensed technologies that Microsoft licences to create IE there will be hitches from here to quite a long time. I couldn't tell you which part of Visual C++ was causing the error or anything like that.

If you are interested Microsoft has hundreds of white and technical papers you can search through for answers!
