I have a Dell Inspiron 4100 laptop running Windows ME. Originally, some hyperlinks would not work in Internet Explorer. So I did a bunch of things like run virus scans and installed some patches based upon the Microsoft sight. Problem still occurred. Ran a repair of IE 6.0. Problem still occurred. Tried to uninstall I.E..0. That is where the bigger problem now happens. Computer now locks up before Window ME fires up all the way. Get error message "Explorer has caused error in SHDOCVW.DLL" I can close that message but the computer does nothing else. Cannot boot up in Safe Mode. Can't reboot with backup discs. I have a $1000 paperweight.[/list=1] Can anyone help me. All my computer-savy friends are stumped.
