I'm using Windows XP Media Center Edition on a Dell Dimension Desktop.

I am getting IE popups with dialogue windows that do not close unless I use the task manager. Below is the source code from the most recent one.

My sound (sigmatel audio) stops working after a while; and I downloaded the driver update from dell.com. When I run it and it says it's installed the driver and asks me to restart then it still doesn't work. If I run it again, it says "Maintenance complete" and then it starts working for a while.
When my sound isn't working, periodically I will hear noise from my speakers that sounds like something turning on and off.
I have a red shield with an X in my system tray that says windows security alerts that I don't trust.

I'm new to this, so forgive me if I have breached any protocols in posting.

Thanks for any help that can be offered.
