Here lately when I am on my faverite web sites, sometimes for only 5 or 10 minutes a big window will pop up and it says, Runtime Error C:\Program files\internet explorer\explore.exe When I X it out I loose everything and the screen goes back to my desk top wallpaper and I have to start all over again. Sometimes it will come right back when I get to the web site again and sometimes it doesn't come back. This only happens on 2 or 3 of my sites and not on any others. I have windows 98. Does any one know what causes this and how I can get rid of it? Thanks for any help, Louie

Go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com or http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/com/activescan_principal.htm and click the Scan Now link to run a free on-line virus scan.

Get, install, update and run free Ad-aware (and its HexDump plug-in) from http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest referencefiles.

Make sure the following settings are made and on -------ON=GREEN

From main window :Click Start then Activate in-depth scan (recommended)

Click Use Custom Scanning Options' then click Customize' and have these options selected: Under Drives and Folders put a check by Scan Within Archives and below that under Memory and Registry put a check by all the options there.

Now click on the Tweak button in that same window. Under Scanning engine select: Unload recognized processes during scanning and under Cleaning Engine select: Let windows remove files in use at next reboot

Click proceed to save your settings.

Now to scan just click the Next button.

When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and click Next)

Restart your computer.

You need to be running a firewall like free Sygate from http://download.com - type, sygate, in the Search box, you must be on-line to register Sygate, that is if you're not using a firewalled Router on a Network or, have another third-party firewall like Sygate installed, to protect you and the Internet community from hackers, spammers and terrorist from using your computer for their own illicit needs while you're on-line?

Thanks Styxx for all the information. I did everything you said and so far the unwanted Runtime Error has not returned.
