When I initiate Internet Explorer, after it connects me to my Internet provider, the screen flashes and it says that it has created an error and will shut down. When I click on the error message the Internet window shuts down without loading any web page. If I initiate the Internet Explorer window without connecting it shows me the normal offline message.
