hi i'm using XP home and normal explorer 6.0 to access the net

avg is my anti-virus and has found no bugs
my firewall is zonealarm free

my problem is that whenever i try to open multiple explorers i get the message 'internet explorer error report'
with the option to debug, don't send report and send report to microsoft.

it ONLY happens when i right click a link and select 'open browser in new window' (that window causes my problem to occur) OR click a link that re-directs me using a new browser...

it gives me the error report and closes any browser windows i have open

this started when i had a new graphics card installed
i assume the problem is related to this, but i have no idea what to do


please help

thanks in advance for any help you may offer

(Moderator edit: thread moved to more appropriate forum. jgweed)

Try running System File Checker. Have your XP CD ready if you have one, because it will check and replace any corrupted files. Go to your Start button, then Run and type in

cmd

and hit enter. Then, in the DOS emulator that pops up, type

sfc /scannow

and hit enter.

The System File Checker will scan for corrupted files and replace them from the CD if necessary.

If that isn't successful you can repair IE.

i just got my xp disc back and tried these solutions

unfortunately i stil have the problem

scanning xp didn't find any problems and re-installing IE etc didn't help either...

is it possible i have some kind of virus or trojan that is causing me problems?

perhaps if i DL'd hijackthis program or similiar ones it would be helpfull with more info?

thank for your help so far

Hi dragonreborn.
In IE, Click Tools>Options>Advanced Tab.
Under "Browsing" make sure there is a check next to both "Disable Script Debugging" options, OK your way out. No real good reason for the average user to have those enabled anyway. There's more you can do but I'll stop here if it cures your problem with IE.
