    recent errors? no error message pops up though. It just closes. No warning nothing..
    also Im currently living in china so all the devices on my computer are written in Chinese.. I have to use memory to remember what to click..

    no no disc.. shoot. Are we thinking that may be the problem? Old version of IE? How come it opens then closes 10 seconds later though.
    Also a game was just downloaded on the computer.. could it be a virus?

    Looks like you have spyware installed on your computer try this, then run some spyware tools like.
    Spyboot search and Destory
    Ad-aware, by lavasoft
    AVG anti spyware.

    1. Click Start /Control Panel.
    2. Double-click Internet Options.
    3. Click the Advanced tab.
    4. Under Browsing, clear the Enable third-party browser extensions (requires restart) check box.
    5. Restart Internet Explorer.
