I just purchased a new "preowned" computer, I have been using Windows 98 and just started using Windows XP at College and now on this new computer.
This message keeps popping up saying "Internet Explorer has experienced a problem and will now close, if
this continues please restart your computer"
Even after I re-start this still happens. What could be wrong and what can I do to stop it?

What version of Internet Explorer are you runnng?

If you have the most recent version 6.0.2900 or so, and all of your Windows XP patches including SP2, and you still have problems then you might try downloading firefox. http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/ and see if that program works better for you. Tho you still need ie for updates.

If you can keep IE open long enough go to Help on the top menu and click on About Internet Explorer.

If not, go to Start Menu > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click on System Information to open it.
Click on Internet Settings (double-click to expand), Internet Explorer and the File versions.
Look for iexplore.exe and its version will be listed there.

You may want to try fixes or patches or even reinstall. I would also suggest that you switch to mozilla firefox. It is a great web browser that dosn't have as many problems as IE does.

I did the fix n the repair.
We will see what happens.

If I decide to d/l the foxfire, do I need to do anything with IE or just
leave it there?

Thank You

Nothing. It will be just fine. You will need IE to update windows.

I am sorry it took so long to get back on here. We just finished up finals at
school so needless to say I have been quite busy.
I downloaded Mozilla Firefox and I like it!!
Thanks guys for the advice!!
