 Explorer error - wininet.dll 0x001dc15 Post a Reply  
From: Paul on 06/06/2003
Sorry my first attempt truncated the error message

"Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2800.1106, faulting module wininet.dll, version 6.0.2800.1106, fault address 0x0001dc15."

Using Win XP with SP1 - Office XP with SP1 & 2
Over the last couple of week, despite not adding any new additional software I am getting the above error when I try to open Windows Explorer. The only way I can search for files is to open Internet Explorer and then change the address to C: from http://
Can anyone help?

Thank

i think i have basically the same problem... but mine is a bit more complicated... i cant even run my desktop... it says that WININET.dll cant b found... ive tried running a system check... and i think that i might b able to just replace the file since its just an execution extension... only problem is that i cant use install shield or install wizard... id have to install it through a command prompt, u can do that right?

does anyone have any advice???

I had this problem on Windows XP. If you read the message it complains about the history folder or at least it did on mine.

I logged in as another user with admin privlidges and renamed the folder c:\documents settings\[username]\local settings\history and then logged back in and things were happy again

I get the same error as everyone, except it only happens when I open an Image (Windows picture and fax viewer), my windows explorer opens fine. The things is someway related with McAfee, I tried turning it off like some of you suggested and the error did not occur. It is also someway related with an update since like many of you the error started to happen after updating windows. Still looking for a solution, hope to find one.

I had the same problem with a Dutch version of XP Home edition and SP1:

Vastgelopen toepassing: explorer.exe, versie: 6.0.2800.1106, vastgelopen module: wininet.dll, versie: 6.0.2800.1106, vastgelopen op: 0x0001dc15.

The solution was te download the wininet.dll from
www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?wininet

unzip the wininet.zip file an replace
c:\windows\system32\wininet.dll with the new one.
Then reboot your system.

It seems te work normaly again.

I have the same problem on two xp pro dell computers. I find it hard to believe it is a mcafee problem as mcafee seems to have been working for the last year.

I'm more inclined to think it is either and update problem or spyware

I have Mc Afee.
Previous workaround was :
turn Mc Afee down,
then start explorer,
then turn Mc Afee on again !!!

Now, I configured my computer to start automaticaly
explorer.exe

This one starts before Mc Afee is active.
I do not have the problem anyway.

I have the same problem, and indeed it seems to be related to McAfee.

When I click 'My Computer' before McAfee is initialised and running (you have to be fast for this) then Windows Explorer works normal. When I wait until McAfee is through its initalisation and click 'MyComputer' (or Recycle Bin, Control Panel, Network Connections, MuDocuments, etc, etc) the Windows Explorer/WININET fails.

Ever since I downloaded Mozilla the crashes are way less!
Mozilla is free and has features like blocking pop ups and more than IE does.
You can always try it without losing anything, so go find it on google.

I'm having the same error with aol9.0 as well. whenever i try to launch a browser from within aol (or using internet explorer) it crashes and references wininet.dll

From what i know wininet.dll is used to connect applications to the Internet as a (common) library. Interestingly enough I too had Mcafee installed (firewall) and all of the sudden the problem started "last week". However, if you reboot and go into safemode with networking enabled, IE works fine! and wininet.dll is fine...

So I think a possible solution is to rebuild ur TCP/IP driver (which changes the wininet.dll) if its corrupted(which i think is the problem)...

my 2 cents

The following link will bring you to Microsoft Knowledge Base Article # 818506, which will explain your errors and Internet Explorer not responding.

It seems that the wininet.dll file must be updated to version 6.0.2800.1207. This is said to correct the faults, but obtaining the file has been an exercise in frustration.

Here is the link, maybe you'll have better luck getting the updated file. If you do, please post a response.

The link:

Take care,

Perhaps it is from one of the recent updates?? I think I did 'Windows Update' just before it started crashing. <-- ditto

I had exactly the same error message:
"Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2800.1106, faulting module wininet.dll, version 6.0.2800.1106, fault address 0x0001dc15."
more and more frequently.
In my case, it seems to be linked to McAfee AVV4.5.1 SP1.
Workaround: I tun off Virus Scan; I start (and close) successfully Windows explorer. Then start again Virus Scan.
I never got the error in this case.
I'am searching for a more satisfactory solution.

I had absolutely the same error but in a little bit different situation: "Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2800.1106, faulting module wininet.dll, version 6.0.2800.1106, fault address 0x0001dc15."

My IE just stopped responding and when I was trying to close it with X button, I got the above error like all of you.

But trying to do what somebody suggested here (delete all files, cookies, history) helped me. Actualy it was not so easy to remove files because IE crashed the same way in this situation, when I was trying to remove them from "Tools->Internet options" menu, but logging in with a different user (administrator, in my case) helped me to remove IE Temp Files manualy from FAR manager.

So I guess it's the solution that works! The question is why MS didn't fix this problem yet or at least publish some comments on resolving this situation. I searched the whole MS site and found nothing about this topic.

Thanks to all for helping me to fix this stupid problem.

I've got the same wininet.dll crashes.

Perhaps it is from one of the recent updates?? I think I did 'Windows Update' just before it started crashing.

Any similiarities in our set ups? One thing I use that may be causing problems is old client proxy software for a client behind an hold Small Business Server firewall. It uses the now-obsolete Windows Proxy Server and Microsoft Winsock Proxy client.

I am using Netscape to write this because Explorer keeps crashing!! That would be an acceptable substitute but other applications that use explorer code for rendering HTML also keep crashing!! (For example, Outlook crashes sometimes when displaying HTML messages.)

Same problem here too! Looks like a common application hang. Trying the adaware software. Originally thought it may have something to do with McAfee, anyt thought anyone?

Many thanks

I've had a problem with Wininet.dll
Seemed to be a problem with temp internet files / History or Cookies

Try Tools | Internet Options - Delete Cookies and Delete Files

If still no joy - Delete the actual Directories "Temp Internet Files" and "Cookies" and "History"


if using a Win2000 or WinXP Machine then create a new profile and see if the same thing happens with the new user.

So im also still waiting for the right solution. Anyone got it?
