Anyone know how to fix this on 64-bit Windows 7? “Runtime Error Program: C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\IELowutil.exe”.
This didn’t start until I upgraded from Vista to 7.
Thanks all. For the record, I do use Firefox and Chrome, but as you know, IE is not something you can remove. The error occurs when I am not using IE, (as I usually don't anyway) but something is triggering this error. It is IE8.
I'm going to try resetting the settings and if that doesn't work, the reinstall.
Make sure IE8 is set as your default browser. To do this:
1.Open Internet Options by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, and then clicking Internet Options.
2.Click the Programs tab, and then click Make default.
Next, I second arr0w's suggestion about resetting IE8 settings. This will delete all temp files, disables any add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars and also resets all changed settings to default. Keep in mind that you will need to reinstall any add-ins you like to use.
If setting IE8 as your default browser and resetting IE8 settings does not fix the problem, you can try reinstalling IE8. Here's how to do it in Windows 7 - http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/InternetExplorer/thread/812f2f4e-295c-47fc-b616-7bf5d4486907
Hope this helps!

You can reset IE back to it's default settings, go to Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>reset button then restart IE. Or uninstall and reinstall IE, say for an XP system, go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs> (left side) Add/Remove Windows Components> Unchceck IE on the list then Next then Finish. Then go back to Add/Remove Windows components, check IE back again, then Next then Finish then restart IE.
Firefox. screw Internet E-Horror
or use Chrome
Firefox, Opera or Chrome. Forget Internet Explorer, it's the lowest of the low as far as browsers are concerned.
How to fix it? Upgrade to Firefox or Chrome. ;)
All jokes aside, according to Google, this is a known problem.
I assume you are using Internet Explorer 8?
