I recently had a serious Adware attack. Fortunately, with the help of Hijackthis and this forum, I was able to stop all the annoying pop-ups, but ever since my IE will suddenly shut down while I am browsing the web. I'm lucky I got to type this whole message.

Any advice on how to resolve this problem?

Thanks!

JJ

Firewall?Blue screen msgs?(could be Windows Protection Measure)tho it will tell
you usually"IE has caused a fault in xxxx & will shut down";Could also be a F/W
defense.Is OE functioning OK?A possible Kernal32 error(also reported usually); a
problem with your ISP(disconnection /time out);do you have call waiting?);is this
random or after set time?;is it possible the sites visited are restricted to members;
Is IE fully updated(IE 6?).If no error messages display,do full scan with everything
& run scandisk in thorough mode;# your advanced settings,restore defaults &
get back to us.

I tried restoring all IE defaults and ran scandisk. Found nothing. IE simply shuts down and closes out while I'm working. No error messages. I don't have an XP CD - only my Dell system software recovery CD.
