Was in the process of playing solitaire on desktop when got a message that 'there is a problem in IE7 and we must shut down etc. etc." Then screen went black, PC shut down and restarted to desktop but had no icons. No amount of CAD would recover them. Had to hot shut down PC and begin again.

Is there something I am/have been doing wrong or need to check to see what did this?

I am on a Dell XPS 400, Win Pro SP2,
Dell XPS400 Dimension Video card Nivdia GeForce 6800
XP-Pro Version 2002 SP2 Sound card Sigma Tel High Defin.
Pentium D CPU 2.80 GHz Audio CODEC
2.79 GHz, 2.00 GB of Ram

I have AVG AV program
Spybot Search and Destroy
Windows Malicious tool remover
Advanced Windows Care V@ Personal

Every so often I run the above programs to keep PC clean as possible and I make it a point to do a 5 point check of files to keep them from accumulating daily plus keep all program updated regularly.

Can advise what more I should be attuned to? :thumbsup:
