So lately my whenever I'm on the internet after I've been on for a few minutes (like 7) A message will come up saying "We have found an error" or something and it gives me the options to either send or not to send the problem. No matter which one I pick it closes anyscreen I would have up at the moment. Anyone know what's going on?

So what can I do to fix it?


Next time it happens, click the link for "More Info", find out what the application is that is crashing, and disable it from starting on boot or reinstall it depending on how critical it is.

Hush you!

Different browsers run better on some computers than others.

I've tried them all, and Safari for Windows is clearly faster than Firefox 3 on my machine. Even though I still advocate open source development, sometimes it's more about convenience.


I find completely the opposite!

Plus, the addons make FF better!

See this? This is why you shouldn't come to an off-topic board on a guitar forum for help with your computer. Saying he should change browser may be a good idea but it doesn't help solve the problem; if his car doors flew off every time he turned left would you tell him to fix the problem by only turning right? Maybe you would .

The length of time it takes for the problem to occur isn't of much use to us, try to recreate the problem and make a note of exactly what you are doing and have recently done (websites visited). Also as another poster suggested when the message box appears click the "More info" button and make a note of anything in there that looks important (a file name ending in either .exe or .dll, for example).

If you haven't already do a spyware scan using Ad-Aware and make this a regular occurence.

I've actually never seen a browser that starts up on boot in XP or Vista.

Next time you get the error, find the .exe that is crashing and disable DEP for it by:
- Right clicking on "Computer"
- Go to Properties
- In the left hand panel, click on "Advanced System Settings"
- Under the "Advanced" tab, click "Settings" in the "Performance" pool
- Navigate to the "Data Execution Prevention" tab
- Select "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select:"
- Click "Add"
- Navigate to the directory where the problem .exe is
- if it's internet explorer, C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe
- if it's Firefox, C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

The problem is the browser. Internet explorer is basically garbage, along with everything else in windows. Switching to Firefox or Opera will most likely solve the problem.

I could point out the fact that IE and Explorer are very much interlinked, and as Explorer.exe starts on boot, there is an example.

What I will actually say though, is that I misread / didn't read part of the OP! So yeah, don't disable explorer.exe!

No it won't, it just hides the problem. I don't need to be educated in the issues that exist with Internet Explorer but this kind of instability usually points to an underlying problem. As much as people hate Microsoft, software doesn't just crash for no reason. No really, it doesn't. I'll grant you that the reason for a crash can simply be an overlooked bug, but I doubt that is the case in this instance.

Are you being sarcastic?
Explorer.exe is your desktop environment, much like Gnome or Xfce on Linux. If you disabled that, then you could just use command prompt to navigate directories and execute programs. IE is just a web browser. I've been working with Windows for 5 years now and I've never seen IE as a startup process. If anything, it would be listed under services.msc, or msconfig - which it's not.

Edit: or by "boot" do you mean 'when the program starts up'?

I know how to fix, format your hardrive how?. Well theres this substance called wood alcohol or "anti-freeze", you rub that on your genitals and set combustion to it, while your foresking and genital hair is combusting quickly stick it in your OFFPC's ( only for fapping personal computer) fan, then bite your arm. Then in perfect harmony take out the harddrive while screaming "Guitar Hero Is better than real guitar!" then bash your erect genitals with the hardrive, until you begin ejaculating blood. And then throw your storage device out through the window, and there problem solved!


Now for real, ehh, either reinstall your internet browser or install a new one, because if your internet browsing software is doing that, then the browser is corrupted, beyond repair. Why? programs work by executing scripts, scripts can be corrupted by, namely, bugs or viruses( which are common on many pay for data sites), accident or not accidental deletion of important files needed for executing scripts, or improper instalation of software.
