Hi,
Everytime my computer starts up a window pops up that says "osCheck has stopped working." In addition to this my Internet Explorer no longer works even though i know have a good internet connection.
The weird thing is that my Internet Explorer works in Safe Mode. Can anybody help me with this? I will probably take it to someone but i wanted to ask on here first. Any and all help or suggestions are appreciated, thanks!

Hi sarah-m, and :huh: to BC!

A Google search shows that this is related to Norton. Is that your AV software?

You probably won't need to take your computer to the shop just for this; the experts here are great at straightening out such problems. I suggest you PM a moderator or administrator and ask to have this thread moved to a more appropriate forum, where you'll get the attention you need.

Good luck! :huh:

It could be that in addition to osCheck, you may still have some remnants of Norton on the system. Here's a handy mini-guide that should help with that problem: How To Completely Remove Norton Security Products.

You might want to start a new thread in Web Browsing/Email and Other Internet Applications for the IE issue, with a link to this thread, in case the problems are related.
