The error is very generic. But pests that are not a virus can cause this.

In short, my advice is to be parasite free. Also, with the Microsoft Code Leak, IE 5.5 is now exploitable so that makes the safer browser to be IE 6.0 or "other" browser.

My policy needle on the pest-meter is pegged at zero tolerance. I eject all that these five tools find.

http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6132-0.html?forumID=32&threadID=1313&start=0 notes the five scanning tools and removal tools that are fairly safe. If one does encounter an issue, its always been damage done by the MALWARE. The most common issue being Layered Service Provider replacement which you can use LSPFIX (Hint: use http://www.google.com to find).

The thread has follow on discussions about new links if you don't want to use Google to find an item.

PS. All the tools are free.

I have the HP, Windows ME, & have the same problem with my internet explorer which started when I had to call my ISP about another problem & the person had me making some changes to correct the problem. He had me to do something to my internet explorer which I didn't really understand what or why I was doing this since the problem was with my mail that had just occured. He fixed the problem with my mail but my internet Explorer hasn't work correct since. Can someone please help me to fix it? Thank You.

Just FYI.

You posted a reply to the original post and as such it may not receive much attention.

In closing, consider the information in your post. All I see is "it doesn't work." With such a light problem description and no gritty wordy details of what happens with IE is run leaves any possibility of a correct diagnosis unlikely.

No IE version is noted.

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.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
