Hello guys,

All of sudden, when trying to open any media file, my Internet Explorer crashes and this message appears:

IEXPLORE.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program.

Is that a spyware? If so how can I get rid of it? I just installed new version of Skype, can it be from that?

I am using Windows2000.

Thank you in advance

FYI, the Iexplore.exe is actually the Internet Explorer program. If this happened right after installing software, try uninstall the software first and seeing if that fixes it. Then you know its being caused by the new software and we can focus on fixing that.
