      What version of Windows and Internet Explorer are you using? Did you try to upgrade Internet Explorer? It’s strange that your browser displays an error when you open another program. Can you share a little more what the error message says or looks like?

      Does this happen when you open a new link from within Internet Explorer? What websites does it happen with? Any?

    Microsoft released a Fix It tool to automate this repair. Read more about that here.

    If that doesn’t work, manually troubleshoot this issue.

    can you please be a little more specific and share with us when this error message occurs? For example does it come up whenever you open the browser or when you visit a specific website?

    Also, what is the exact wording of the error message?
