The error message says

Internet explorer has stopped working

A problem has caused internet explorer to close and so on.

I just got this computer yesterday. There wasn't a problem with internet explorer until I installed firefox, then I unstalled it. I'm sure firefox isn't the problem. I installed other software as well. What should I do?

p.s. I scanned the computer using ad aware, and a-squared and avast antivirus!

Internet Explorer will stop working almost all the time cause a conflict with a Plugin or Active X...

Go to "MSconfig".

Click on Start > Type in "Start Search" MSconfig" (no quotes) and hit Enter...

Go to the Startup tab and look for "OmniPage" and uncheck it...

Go to internet options...

Start > Control panel > Left side of window click on classic view > Internet options.

In "General" tab, and look for browsing history and click on "delete..." Delete all...

Go to "Programs" tab and click on "Manage Add-ons". Add-ons are active-x controls that change the way Internet Explorer is used. These can be toolbars, plug-ins, and other code that can interfere with the operation of IE. Select any suspicious add-on names from the name list and select disable to prevent the add-on code from opening when IE is opened.

Finally go click the "Advanced" tab. Remove the checkmark from "Enable third-party browser extensions (requires restart)",
Also unchek "Enable memory protection to help mitigate online attacks".

Restart and the error should not come back.

These errors are probably caused by browser extensions that were added through spyware or adware.

Maybe a look in here, and posting your log will help if this didn't.

Hope it helps
