    Hi Calmart,

    I am not sure what version of internet explorer you have but this is a good tread i have used before to fix this issue:

    how to REALLY get rid of "a program has corrupted your default - Microsoft Community

    Try starting from where the thread begins for example; where the explanation of resetting the settings start and then the troubleshooting that follows if that does not fix the issue.

    One way of troubleshooting is to do a clean boot and then start brining in the 3rd party applications until you find the culprit:

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    Cheers,

    hi harry

    tried what you suggested, don't really know if I did this right but still have the problem.

    the thing that I cannot understand is that all of my programmes seem to be working ok even my google homepage
    comes on ok, but I still get this message of corruption.

    hi harry

    thanks for reply and all of your help.
    I have had a lot of problems on this computer lately so I have reinstalled the whole system back
    to factory settings, this seems to have solved everything.

    thanks again

    regards calmat
