Am running IE6 with Service Pack 1 plus cumulative updates on Win98SE
system that is also current according to the MS Windows Update
After problems with IE6 (freezing up), I have tried the IE Repair
Tool, which reports IE6 cannot be repaired because MSTIME.DLL is
missing or corrupt. I followed instructions to re-run IE Setup,
selecting the complete re-install option. After rebooting, Windows
reports that MSTIME.DLL causes an error and must be terminated. I
manually installed MSTIME.DLL from the IE6 CAB files, then repeated
the whole process. Same result.
I verified that C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSTIME.DLL exactly matches what is
in the IE6 CAB file and has the same properties as those published in
the MS Knowledge Base listings for IE6 CAB contents.
BTW, I did do the sequence of "Regsvr32" commands that has been
published many time in this newsgroup. All the DLL's registered fine
except MSTIME and SHELL32. Regsvr32 reported that MSTIME and SHELL32
were corrupt and did not register.
Here are my current file properties.
Mstime.DLL 6.00.2800.1106, 496,128 bytes, 8/29/2002
Shell32.DLL 4.72.3812.600, 1,388,816 bytes, 12/6/2001
Can anyone help me?
