Hi Guys, This one is very distinctive so hoping someone recognises the problem.

Internet Explorer shuts down and displays the "IE has encountered a problem..." message box, whenever I input text into a screen, eg when trying to input search text into yahoo/google, or even writing this post - I had to switch to another PC.
It's XP Pro, and happens just about every time.

I've tried running Firefox - basically, the same happens with that!

If anyone has any ideas whats going on, would appreciate some advice!

Thanks for reading!

I'm going to shift this topic to the Web-browsing forum. I'm not certain what is causing the issues at this point. They should be able to narrow things down in that forum for you.
