Runtime error '-1 (ffffffff)' HELP!

P: 11
I'm trying to make a program that accesses a website through VB6 and the Webbroswer and fills in info automatically.

For some reason when the webpage comes up on the the webbroswer, I get the message "Runtime error '-1 (ffffffff)'".

I'm using IE7. I've heard that there may be some incompatibility with it and webbroswer. Is there anything that I can do, aside from uninstalling IE7 (since I work on the company computer) that will resolve this?

Thanks!

No, I'm using the Webbroswer Control. Should I use Inet?

Not sure about the Webbroswer Control but I had implemented a project with the Inet Control.

Found the solution! Go to

look for 'Dagger' -- his solution on changing the registry values in Windows worked like a charm!

Thanks!
