When I'm trying to play some games, Internet Explorer keeps flashing a box that says "Internet Explorer has shut down this site" Then I have the option to close the program, or have internet explorer try to resolve the problem and return to the site.

I always have it resolve the problem, but it does it so often, and sometime that means that I can't get back to the people who I am playing with. So far it usually happens when I'm playing on the Winster site. I allow pop-ups when I'm playing....but don't know if that has anything to do with it!

I haven't tried to fix the problem, as I have no idea what to do. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

Try flushing your dns cache

1. Click the Microsoft Vista Start logo in the bottom left corner of the screen
2. Click All Programs
3. Click Accessories
4. RIGHT-click on Command Prompt
5. Select Run As Administrator
6. In the command window type the following and then hit enter: ipconfig /flushdns ( make sure you put a space between ipconfig and / )

When its finished you should see it saying this

Windows IP Configuration
Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.

Good Luck let us know how this goes ! :huh:

Never ever allow pop-ups, at any stage whilst on any site, have you ran any scans, if not download malwarebytes from this link http://www.malwarebytes.com its the blue button on the page thats the free version after it downloads follow the instructions let it update then scan if it finds anything check to delete then reboot to enable clear completion !

You might consider updating that old version of Firefox as well. Your log said version 1.9.1.3622 and I'm currently running 3.5.30729

Not only are the newer versions faster, but they're also more secure (the most important part).

That could also explain those crashes....
