Help,

Mine started doing that yesterday, a trojan warning popped up on my AV then proceeded to close it down and then having to restart. Has something sneaky wormed it's on way onto Arrse then?

Does it freeze up then shut down and restart?

Mine has been doing this for about a week now :?
No, IE7 shuts down, the rest of the laptop works a s normal, I can restart IE and use it ok, unitil I try to use a link in a window ie a link from the last 50 posts and bam shut down. Sometimes the second page opens then up comes the box to notify microsoft and goodnight IE7

Sounds like something different then.
On MSR's advice I have installed Bit Defender and it found 2 Trojans immedietly.
My computer seems to be running faster as well.
I don't know if this will solve the involuntary 'shutdown' yet, but time will tell.
Good luck.

Try running IE7 with no add-ons;
Start Programs Accessories System Tools Internet Explorer
(No Add-ons)



Edit (Off to bed) If that sorts it then you have to find which one is causing the problem.
Right click IE desktop icon, Properties, Program tab, Manage add-ons.
Start with non-microsoft add-ons and disable one at a time to find the problem.
You can then uninstall/reinstall the associated programme which might sort it.

OK both loaded and run, nothing found, IE7 still crashing on Arrse. Any ideas?
Mine has been doing that for a while now. Microsoft don't know what it is. Just keep sending the 'report problem to microsoft' and hopefully they will sort it out.

There seem to be problems with all IE browsers,from time to time.I switched to Firefox 2 years ago,and never looked back.

Firefox beats MSIE, if you insist on using MSIE, then look at the add ons. Mostly i find the MSN Messenger add on creates a lot of problems. You can try disabling this and reload the page, see what happens.

There are alternatives to IE.

Firefox has already been named, but there is also Google Chrome. So far very pleased with it, some useful features (such as direct search from the menu bar).
