I went though a process about two weeks ago where one of the BC experts helped restore my computer and ultimately eliminate a search engine redirect problem. The support was outstanding.

Today I noticed a new problem when I am using IE 8. I will get messages telling me the webpage has been restored but I am not able to get it back. When I close IE 8 I see Notepad Icons on my desktop with labels such as "hs_err_pid2712" The content says something about an Exception Stack Overflow.

Any ideas?

Well, I think I answered my own question. I saw a reference to Java in the Notepad files stored on my desktop. I updated my JAVA and all is well now.
