I have been having an issue with internet explorer. Every 2 to 4 minutes the browser crashes every time. Also a sudden
computer seizure occurs and it freezes up for 2-5 min or so. When I click on a seach link it redirects me might be related might not.

I run Windows XP. I've also ran Malware Bytes, SUPERantispyware, it found a few things
I've updated both until they said no more updates available. And ran both in safe mode repeatedly.
I also used ATFCleaner. I changed a few settings turned off explores crash recovery* deleted down to basic Java. Unplugged the internet and ran anti spyware. Ran GMER and it vcrashed my computer oops. Didn't try that agian. I really don't want to switch over to Firefox and I even deleted google toolbar. No luck.

Any help with this would be much appreciated. I have a feeling a popup is causing my grief
when I open the internet a warning stating that webshots(a screen saver) is asking me if it should continue
block an application from changing my browser search settings. I clicked yes no exit out each time same results.

Agian I really appreciate any help. I'm just fed up with this
