    Before I could open any programs this pop up box would come up saying -"This program has performed and illegal operation shutting down." If I clicked on the close part it would go away and I could continue doing whatever I was going to do. But I don't want it to keep coming up all the time. What can I do?

    Hi Candy,

    You could start by clicking 'details' and telling us the exact text of your error.

    We don't need all the stacks and registers, just the text of the error message itself.

    Example: 'Iexplore caused an invalid page fault in module Mshtml.dll'

    Good luck,
