Tip: If you are asking for help to troubleshoot a computer-related problem, please be sure to include all the necessary information (ie: operating system, model number, hardware, software, etc) that will help others identify your problem for a speedy resolution.

Think about your post. Would you be able to help someone given what you've written? You left out far too many details to even hazard a guess as to what's wrong. For instance, you could have loaded XP and have no Antivirus, are unaware of the Blaster, Nachi, Welchia WORMS that can invade the system even with a current antivirus. This goes on and on, but in short, you could try SYSTEM RESTORE to when it worked, but give so little clues to work with, it's all that can be offered along with the note above and a request you tell more. A story too?

Hey Bob,
I am having a similar problem. I have XP, and just recently downloaded Easy WORD from Freeware to open MS WORD docs. After that, I lost access to the web via IE. However, Netscape works. I uninstalled the Freeware, ran Norton's, tried to remove and re-install IE, but nothing. Tried to report the error through the dialog box that comes up, and, again, that doesn't work either. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks in advance. Also, how do you perform a system restore?

I'm monitoring your posts and see you are getting excellant advice. I do wonder why you didn't go for the top of the line offering of Open Office, but there is no need for you to answer this. My feeling is you'll get there soon.

Hey Bob,
Can you provide a link for Open Office that is compatible with XP? Also, what would you suggest in regard to my IE problem? I bought this computer from Best Buy, preloaded with all kinds of garbage that I didn't want. I am thinking that I should gut it out and start from scratch. Any advice? Thank you. -brruss

1. When error occurs and Error Reporting is enabled, a dialog box is displayed prompting the user to indicate whether or not they want to report the problem. When choosing to report the problem, technical information about the problem is collected and then sent to Microsoft over the Internet. If a report is rendered and if a similar problem has been reported by other people and more information is available, a link to that information will be provided the user.

a. Were there no links or anything else provided should you submit the report?

b. Please. For your benefit, always report the error information this report contains when wanting our analyses.

2. When a system error occurs, the computer displays a blue screen containing error codes and all computer operations stop. When an illegal operation or other error occurs in a program, that program stops working. System and program errors may be transmitted to Microsoft which allows them to track and address operating system, Windows component, and program errors. Error Reporting configuration is outlined in, [Q310414]:

a. Enable or disable
b. Enable for the operating system
c. Specify the program for which a report is generated
d. Remove programs from the list
e. Send an error report to Microsoft

Thank you.

You might try IE-reinstall

Have XP cd in drive-( or know where i386 file is if name brand without CD), search for file named IE.inf, right click-select install- it runs file checker-like repair on Internet Explorer only- rather than full file checker ( sfc /scannow)
