If the Apple QuickTime program is installed on your computer, you may receive the following error message:
Iexplore.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
If the error message is still displayed and you want to see the data that the error report contains, click the click here link at the bottom of the message box. You then see error signature information that may be similar to the following:
   App name      App version  Module name                  Module version
   Iexplore.exe  6.0.2600.0   Quicktimeinternetextras.qtx



This issue may occur if you are using an older version of QuickTime. Internet Explorer for Windows XP versions 5.5 Service Pack 2 (SP2) and 6.0 no longer support Netscape-style plug-ins, such as the plug-in that is installed as part of QuickTime version 5.0.2 and earlier.


To resolve this issue, obtain and install the most current version of QuickTime. For information about how to do so, please visit the following Apple Web site:
