A little more info would be good. What is your operating system?

Go to Start>Settings>Control panel>Add/Remove programs, highlight Internet Explorer and click on Remove. A box will pop up. Select Repair Internet Explorer. This will perform a check of your IE and fix any problems. That should help, and is usually the first thing to try.

Post back and let us know whats happening.

Press Ctrl+Alt+del and post back with what is in there. Those are your running programs.

Don't see any obvious spyware or anything, so thats good. But you do have a lot of programs running that will slow your computer.

How much ram do you have?

Go here and search the items from that list. It will tell you what each one is. Decide what needs to be running all the time. The less the better. For instance, wzqkpick is running in the background and it is totally unneccessary. It is Winzip. If you find one like that go to Start>Run>type in msconfig and click ok. Go to the startup tab and take the check mark from that item. It will no longer start when you boot your computer. You don't need to reboot until you are done. WinZup will still operate normally but will take a second or two longer to open, thats all. If you take some of those out you will notice an improvement in the speed of your computer.

If you are unsure of some of them leave them alone and post them back and we'll help you decide.

BTW, McAfee is brutal on your system resources.

Your version of IE was probably updated.. Go to:

Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information>Tools>Internet Explorer Repair Tool.

This can also be caused by a bad install of a Critical Update for IE. You can also find those in Add/Remove Programs. Try uninstalling them one at a time.

Look in Tools>Internet Options>General tab>Settings>View Objects. This is a list of installed plugins. If any show as corrupted then right click them and remove. When you run across a site that needs anything you remove you will be prompted to reinstall it.

Another issue can be a bad or corrupted Flash installation. Go here and download the uninstall program and run it. Then go back to macromedia.com and reinstall it.

I wish I could guarantee that some of this will work but its really a crapshoot. The only sure way to be rid of that error is to use another browser!

Right click and select properties. For the unknowns what is:

!)The name at the top, the type and the code base under General and the description and company under version.

Do that for each unknown.

If they are corrupted they will say corrupted where it says installed.
