    How to stop getting this error message "Explorer has caused an error in COMCTL32.DLL. Explorer will close"?

    I am getting an error message 'Explorer has caused an error in COMCTL32.DLL. Explorer will close' while loading Outlook Express. But instead this problem closes down almost everything. However, it runs fine thereafter.

    If the first one succeeds and the second one fails, there's a good TCP/IP connection but no name resolution. In that case, try this fix:
    Go to Control Panel | Internet Options | Connections. If there's a LAN Settings button, click it, then clear all of the boxes on that screen.
    If that doesn't help, try this:
    1. Un-install Dial-Up Networking. Don't reboot.
    2. Delete registry key HLMSystemCurrentControlSetServicesWinsock2
    3. Re-install Dial-Up Networking.
    4. Reboot.

    Hi,
    there might be problem with the library file ,it might be corrupted or misplaced,so better provide a new .dll in the directory
    c:\windows\system32 where "c" is the drive name where the windows is installed.the dll file can be downloaded from internet of which
    i have provided a link....
