    HI there

    apologies if this thread is in the wrong place, but I would love some help with an Internet Explorer problem.

    I have recently bought a laptop and when every i try to connect to the internet with Explorer it closes itself down. It usually gets a page loaded but closes once i click on a link.

    It shows this message in a box headed "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library":

    Runtime Error!

    Program: C:\Program Files\ Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe

    This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

    Does anyone know if there is an easy way to deal with this? Should I contact the manufacturers?

    thanks for any help
