I'm having a problem with my internet closing down continually, especially when I go to websites that have some sort of multimedia included. This is happening to me in both AOL and Explorer... I cannot have my browser open for more than a few minutes at a time without it shutting itself down. I recently had spyware/adware removed from my computer, and was told that what is happening now is not a security problem, and that some of you over in the forum may be able to help me out. I have had my HiJackThis log checked and everything seems ok with that.

Any suggestions as to what may be causing this are much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Is this happening with one specific media program such as Windows media, Real, quicktime,etc.? Are they up to date?
Have you updated with all Window updates including SP2, flash, Java?
Do you have another browser such as Firefox?

Does your browser shut down after a few minutes no matter what sites you are visiting, or does this just happen if you click on a multimedia presentation on a site, or does it close down when you just enter such a site? Knowing exactly what you are doing when the browser closes down (any error messages?)will help us to understand what is happening.

My wife's laptop has a simliar problem but it shuts down when she tries to go to setain websites.

The laptop will no longer run Google Earth where it did before. It won't open the homepage of Longleat.co.uk but it can do other pages on that site. Bumblebeeauctions.co.uk is another site that crashes both AOL and IE on the laptop.

It runs Windows XP and we have had it debugged etc. by PCWorld. We have run Adaware, Spyware and McAfee anti virus progs.

Anyone got any ideas as to whta's going wrong?
