Suddenly, I am getting this message all the time. No matter what program I am using it comes up and when I click ok the program closes - it happens with Firefox, Notepad and even Windows Explorer:
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Buffer overrun detected!
Program: C:\Program Files\Firefox 3\firefox.exe
A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated.
I've searched for answers via Google but there doesn't seem to be anything recent on it. And no answers come up on a forum search here. Have I suddenly got a faulty OS, or a bug of some kind?
One or two old discussions, from 2008/09 seem to indicate a virus but none of the solutions appear to be relevant.
