    I am a PC user and have been since 1978, NOT a programmer or troubleshooter.

    Yesterday, while attempting to load a webcam page that I have viewed a couple hundred times in the past, I received a RUNTIME ERROR in Internet Explorer indicating that "an unusual shutdown request was received" and the program must be shut down. In order to procede with anything, that ERROR BOX must be checked OK and I.E. shuts down. I have to reboot it. This problem ONLY occurs when I am going to webpages which have USER CONTROLS to pan, tilt and zoom the webcam for that page. Other live streaming webcams without controls are not affected by this error message.

    Any thoughts? Also IS THERE some way to REFRESH Internet Explorer 6.0 without doing a full remove and reinstall? This might give me back whatever protocol is corrupted or missing for some reason. The only CD ROM that I have is the Internet Explorer 5.5 from EZN which became version 6.0 by going to the Windows Update Page, so reinstalling 6.0 is not possible locally here from a CD ROM. Thanks ahead of time.

    Ron - The text in the LICENSE "READ ME" indicates:

    This is the text in the error message box:

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
    Runtime Error

    Program C:\ Program Files\ Internet Explorer\Explorer. EXE


    This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way.

    Please contact the program support group for details.

    When I use Netscape 7.0, the page works fine...but I don't like Netscape and would like to get IE working again.

    The page in question is:

    http://www.gulfcondos.com/webcam/

    We are using WIN. 98SE and it is up to date with updates. Thanks again for any hints.

    I went to the site using Firefox 1.0 and it told me I needed an additional plugin.
    The plugin listed was Sun Java J2SE50.

    Sun Java

    Thanks, Ron - I'll see what happens... and let you know later.

    EDIT: 35 minutes elapsed>>>

    Ron, I went to Sun Micro and downloaded Runtime Environment 1.4.2 (For IE) and 1.5.0 ( for Netscape) installed them and everything is working EXCEPT, that I also had to get a new version of Axis Active X camera control...which I did as well. Evidently, the Runtime 1.4.0 version had a time-out license which expired, and the software self destructed but did not mention this to me in a dialog box. Unfortunate, because I wasted nearly 7 hours over 3 days fighting with this.

    Thanks for your help...BUNCHES!!

    Ron - I did a test this morning. When IE 6.0+ needs to use Java Runtime, it launches the 1.4.2 version. When Netscape 7.0 needs that function, it launches the 1.5.0 version. Everything is back to normal, now BUT as I understand it, due to a licensing war, JAVA will cease to exist in it's current form in 2007. It works fairly well as is and I hope that the constant bickering from past years between MS and Sun will find some resolution so the end users are not forced into another battle similar to VHS versus BETA videotaping formats from the early 1980's.

    Thanks again.

    I believe Microsoft will be out of the Java business in 2007. Sun will still be hanging in there.
    Good to hear everything is running well now. :)
