Just reformatted comp because of the typically wierd errors that have plagued this system. I've tried everything, done everything , and now, everything seems to be fine.

Except for when I leave internet explorer on for an extended period. My Computer reboots itself automatically, without my consent. I lose all my stuff :(.

I use windows XP, and am not sure how to check which version of Internet explorer i have, plz help~.

if you have XP you must have IE6

but to check which version of IE6 and whether it should be patched with the latest security updates open IE/help/about

then if you have reformatted you should go to windows update & download ALL the myriad of security & problem fixes/patches that have been posted

it seems this computer has a myriad of things wrong with it now...

Now, its a struggle just to get it to boot. The computer picks the error message/s of the day to say when it boots, then i have to either try multiple times to get to a desktop, or it repeatedly says disk read error when there are no disks in the drives. Once i get it to boot though, this internet explorer restarts is the only problem.

I bought this computer off VPR Matrix and its had an error record longer than the great wall of china. thx for tips

I suggest you have more than a problem with Internet Explorer going on. You may be having hard drive probs. D/L a HDD utilities program and see if you can run that. It may help in understanding what's going on. Maxtor's diagnostic utlity can be downloaded here:

Be sure to read the instructions on the site about how to use it.

raybro, thx for the site, but it seems that program is to convienently format your harddrive. Although I admit, i think it is the harddrive, im not sure that is a diagnostic.

Any other links? ^_^
