Now my "windows explorer" keeps crashing, and I think it is to do with pop ups as it seems to only happen when I have my internet connected and it tends to happen just before or after my internet bring up some random website. These websites appear when I try and access a website, not just on their own like pop-ups usually do. And they tend to be search sites. Now I have a firewall, pop-up blocker and internet security etc. So I'm not sure how else to stop this from happening. The security software I have is Norton if that's any help, and it's the recent version as I've just updated and renewed my subscription for it. I also have the utilities software which is takes cookies and other temporary files off the computer as I thought it could have something to do with that.
Granted it isn't exactly a serious problem, I'm just worried incase it ends up developing into one. At the moment it's generally just very irritating.
I don't think there's anything else I can say that might help, so if someone has any insight to stop this properly I'd really appreciate it.
Also, originally it was crashing and had to be reset, I'll admit it's started to manage to fix itself without resetting the whole computer but it is still irritating.
Another add to this, seems like my phising filter is being knocked off sometimes when this happens too.
