  1. Hi
    Could anyone who's computer savvy give me a bit of a hand?
    whenever I click on a link, screen message automatically pops up saying ...internet stopped working..
    but the fact that I'm able to post this tells me otherwise, wtf is going on?
    cheers my dears.

    Whose computer?
    Which operating system?
    Which antivirus? When was it last updated?
    Which browser?
    What exactly does the message say?

    Give us a clue...
  3. Hi
    It's a bog standard Dell laptop running on vista home, It's just started to eff about in so much as when I click on any link it immediately says ...internet explorer has stopped working.. but as you see I'm still on the internet.
    every thing otherwise seems to work OK.

    4/6 isn't bad. Now answer these 2:

    Which antivirus? When was it last updated?
  5. Hi
    no antivirus listed, all It says thats on here is windows I said its bog standard.
    message that it throws up is...internet explored stopped working.
  6. Try a decent browser... anything but IE.

    Other than that are your updates up to date?
  7. Yes funnily enough the problem only started after the last update was installed.
  8. just completed a system restore to the 16/8/11 seems to be sorted now....cheers.
