    I get the popup that IE encountered a problem and will be shut down...send an error report, or it happens with Firefox. I will usually be working in one window with IE, then I'll open up Myspace in another window let's say with Firefox. I usually get the error message while I'm on Myspace and then that window will just shut down. Tonight I had 2 IE 7 windows open, and it crashed both windows. Not sure what it is about that site that would cause this.

    If it hasnt been happening prior and you haven't made any changes, malware could be the cause.

    I've already been doing that in another post. But I hadn't addressed this particular issue when I posted my Hijack this log.

    I would simply abandon this thread and post this problem into the thread with the HJT log, the two problems are most likely related to each other.
