I have Vista. When I try to attach a picture to an email I get the message "a malfunctioning or malicious add on has caused Internet Explorer to close this website" When I start a new message to the same person a second time I'm able to attach pictures from my own pictures. I'd like to know if I have something wrong that I can correct that will avoid getting this message and closing down Internet Explorer.

hello

just a thought, try running IE without add ons...... start > all programs > accessories > system tools > IE without add ons...

see if that helps, if so one of your add ons is corrupt and needs to be replaced.....post back with results....good luck

Hi Kenny,

I went there, but for Vista, apparently you have to select each add on to disable or enable it. It isn't done for all at once. I didn't know which to disable. Guess I could try them one by one, but that'd take a long time . . . . Any idea which might be interfering with attaching pictures to Yahoo?

hello

there should be an option to run IE without add ons, if not you will have to disable one at a time, or all at once try the email thing, then if that solves it re enable one at a time.........good luck
