How do I get rid of Ssl.dll error


Error occurs in Ssl.dll when you try to start Internet Explorer. Symptoms, MC IE has encountered a problem wnd needs to close. We are sorry etc. Cause reported to occur if an unknown 3d party program is installed that conflicts with IE. Keyword KB817833 Cant find the referenced program to disable. Cant find the suggested folder that may hold the problem. I have disabled the third party progam in the Tools menu and this solves the problem, except that I now cannot use my popup feature and other possibles. Two previous "experts" have failed to help.
