Thanks, you're right Dave. Then I would try to replace my existing copy this way...

If you're running Windows Vista or Windows 7 on your computer, you can install Windows Internet Explorer 9 to replace your existing version of Internet Explorer.

How do I install or uninstall Internet Explorer 9?

...............Were there any solutions from above? I'm trying to get a computer to "end task" for Rundll32 on a Vista machine. Explorer keeps stopping and starting and then the Rundll32 is closed message. Endless loop. When the task is ended, it is removed from the window but then re-populates itself.
Safe mode or safe with networking is all that allows normal usage.

Any help here?
