Click on start -> run ->
type in cmd -> enter

Then type in the following(one at a time):

regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 shell32.dll
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 mshtml.dll
regsvr32 urlmon.dll

Once you do this, you should be able to start up IE and actually visit a webpage instead of it hitting an error.

<added>Oh, and I don't want to hear any lip from the IE haters out there, which I know that this post is going to bring. I can't help it if I am forced to use it here at work! ;)

Very cool tip macrost! Why not simplify this into a batch file and stick it on your desktop?

Open NotePad and enter the following:

regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 shell32.dll
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 mshtml.dll
regsvr32 urlmon.dll

Save As... "fix-ie.bat" on your desktop. Then the next time you have an IE shut-down just click on the icon for this batch file and each of these commands will run. You may get some security nag screens from Windows depending on your settings.

bill,
That's actually an excellent idea! If I come up with any more quick fixes, I'll be sure to post them, that way I won't forget how to do them! ;)
