Lately, just about everytime I use the computer, whether it be to try to post messages on forums or do some research, a message unexpectedly pops up on the screen which says: Internet Explorer has enountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience ... blah, blah."

The screen freezes and the only escape is to click on to "Tell Microsoft about this problem." Then everything disappears and the browser closes. All work is lost and can't be retrieved. I have noticed that other people are complaining about this very same problem. What is Microsoft trying to do? Does it have more business than it wants and is deliberately trying to chase away customers by sabotaging their work? Is it somekind of malicious Microsoft mischief?

Can anything be done to correct this problem?

Thanks in advance for any advice or solutions.

Emm well no it isnt microsoft bleeping about with u i had mostly the same thing but i wasnt able to get onto the internet at all. I found out i had smeitfrud through spybot search and destroy. I resloed this problem by posting a thread on the topic highjack this log and analyzis on bleeping computer lol!!!!! I may think your computer is infected with a virus or trojans so what i would recommend is download highjack this from here http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index....=tpmod;dl=item5
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

U paste the high jack this log into a new topic u should start on the forum
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/ and the lwait for a reply from 1 of the experts to c wats wrong

Hope i helped
regards Peter

For IE6, there is some chance this might be relevant - and is still related to the old security update 918899
MS updated the relevant KB article and provides a download to fix, maybe

Patch Tuesday is just around the corner, they might fix it then.
