    I have XP with service pak 3 with IE 8.0 with plenty of memory and disk space. Everything is completely updated also.
    As soon as I click on the browse button to attach an email, my program just freezes or a message that IE or Firefox has shutdown and will reopen in a new tab.. This happens in Outlook Express and all my web mail, too. With Outlook Express I can go as far as clicking on "insert/file attachment" and the whole program just vanishes and I'm back on my desktop.
    I've tried reinstalling IE 8 and also intalled Firefox, too, and still have the same results. At the same time this problem appeared, Notepad and one of the graphics programs I use won't let me save without crashing. They just vanish!
    I have so many programs on this computer that I wouldn't begin to know where to start but I have disabled all my browser add ons and accelerators and all my startup programs running in the background also. I also emptied the Temp. Internet file, etc. and reset my browser to it's default settings and still get the same reults.
    I have my email scanning turned off with my anti virus software and I get no results for virus's or spyware with that or my spyware programs.
    I have googled and Binged for days trying to find someone with simalur symptons to no avail. Everything was working fine for the last 4 years until about a month ago. (That's how long I've been searching for an answer). Please.....someone, help!

    PS: just found out that I can't click on browse in order to put a profile pic in for this site either! It just freezes and I have to start up the Windows task manager to end task which crashes Internet Explorer. What next???
