I live in a dorm with a shared ethernet network. Recently the entire building was without internet. Luckily, my wireless works. However (here's my problem), every time I try to type in my address bar, I receive an error message. Pretty much the gist of it is, "Windows has encountered a problem and must shut down." This occurs when I start typing. I can't get past "ww" before the screen freezes and the message pops up. What did I do to my computer to cause this? Is it something I did? How can I possibly fix it?

Thanks for your help!

When the dialog box appears, click Send Report.
The Windows error reporting service will see if your problem is known, and if so, will direct you to a web site with more information on how to fix it.
What is the error reported when you Send Report?

You can also try updating, or disabling, Internet Explorer plug-ins:
Open IE.
At the top, click Tools, and select Manage Add-ons...
Just follow the direction in the Manage Add-ons... box.

Another thing to try, is a repair/reinstall of IE:

I haven't received a link from Microsoft that'll help me fix this problem.
Methods one and two under How to Repair Internet Explorer didn't work.

You can give this a try:
IEFix

IEFix - is a general purpose repair utility for Internet Explorer which repairs Internet Explorer by registering it's core DLL files and reinstalls using the IE.INF file.

Thanks for your help. I updated to IE 7, which fixed my "front page" buisness. I'm still having connectivity problems with my IP address, but I think that's the dorm network, and not my computer (or, I'm hoping it's the dorm network and not my computer!)

Thanks again :thumbsup:
