    Hi, so I've had this problem for a while now and I'm finally getting sick of it.

    My programs and windows will randomly close without warning and without being considered a crash when I try to access a file, program, or internet page with a certain word in the title. The key word that seems to close things seems to be the word "download". When I try to open a program with the word in the title it closes. If I try to open my Downloads file it closes the explorer window. If I try to open an internet page with the word in the URL it will close the tab almost instantly. The only other thing of note that has also been affected seems to be the main Control Panel (The one where you can access all the little sub-categories, which themselves work fine.) which closes on its own aswell.

    My computer is an HP laptop whose model I forget and runs Windows 7 Home Basic. I inherited this computer from a relatives business who bought it and relied on an employee to use it, though the employee did not know what they were doing have the time and installed countless useless web applications like toolbars and such, most of which I had to go through the pain-staking task of removing one-by-one (And I have no doubt there are still some in there that don't show up in the remove and uninstall page...)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hope you can help me, and my thanks in advance.
