    working with a HP laptop using WIN XP Home. At certain times on different web pages or especially forwarding mail I get the following message. " Internet Exporer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." I have disable scriprt debugging and that does not help. There is no mention of any particular file or dll to upgrade. I used system restore and that did not help. I went back to a month prior to the even occurring. Thanks for any help given

    This is an annoyance that can happen to any computer user. Some conflict occurs and Internet Explorer decides to close. If you restart IE and go back to the site, you usually can continue on normally.

    The next time it crashes, make sure to click "Send Error Report" and follow the link to the solution on Microsoft's website.

    It's probably a Flash bug. I'd recommend updating your Adobe Flash Player here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/

    Thanks for the comeback. While waiting for replies here I also got one on the "PC help forum" which worked. Evidently the browser was hijacked and after I used a very lengthy solution and removed all spyware etc., the machine was back to normal I will update the adobe flash though. . (y)

    That isn't very helpful.

    Sorry, I just meant that I've had problems with IE7 in the past also. Then I switched to Firefox, and it's really a great browser:cool: You don't get all the error messages like you do with IE7.
    But it's a personal preference, and I do hope you get your issue resolved:)

    You are right about Firefox, I have two other machines and use it more often with less hassle. Unfortunatly there are some places where IE 7 is necessary so you've got to have both on your desktop to use. :)

    Yes of course, I know that. I use IE7 when I have to, but I prefer Firefox for everything else. And you can customize it too, which is really nice.

    Good luck:)
