I am pretty good w/ comps but i have never seen this. i get this error that is picked up by visual studio just in time debugger whenever i open firefox, iexplorer, outlook (ping, ftp is fine),
the error will says An unhandled win32 exception occurred in firefox.exe [3960] or msimn.exe [4088] or iexplorer.exe[4744]
the error if i push the box to the side will still allow me to use those programs.
the only difference in my system from yest is i installed premiere (but i had it running previously on this machine),
any help would be greatly appreciated. i dont think its a virus as i have run adaware and norton and they went smoothly.
its driving me nuts and i can find no info on it online.
the only remedy i see is a fresh install, which i major league do not want to do.
thanks for any help,
jeff borland

If you didn't have the problem before yesterday you may want to try Windows System Restore before you do a full frest install.

start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore

Choose a date from before the problem existed.
