This problem has been driving me ABSOLUTELY crazy. I am about to reformat, but please, if you can help, tell me!

Whenever I use my computer after a reboot, I can open ONE window, whether it be MY COMPUTER, or a folder from my desktop. After that, whenever I try to open anything else that is a window, I get this message:
"windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close, if this persists please restart your computer" I click for more info on the problem and it says that there is something wrong with ftapp.dll

Then when i hit the close button, I get another error saying internet explorer has crashed, and I need to restart. WHY can I only open one window without a problem. I have tried reinstalling IE 6 and that dosen't help. I dont have room to go into all that I have tried, but please, if you know anything about this problem let me know!!

SPECS:
Win XP Prof
Pentium 1.3
256 Ram

Nope, no imesh.

This has happened ONCE before, and someone told me to remove explorer from windows components, and reinstall it. I did that and it worked for a few weeks. Now the problem is back, and I did the same again. This time the reinstall didnt work.

any ideas?

The problem is gone, is there anyway to delete ftapp.dll because it has write protected itself.
