Internet expoler unhandled exception .in third party module and should be closed. when i try to close it keeps popping up with new windows and they will not close so i end up with a lot of window starting...


First of all get a good Malware and an anti-virus programm [I use AVG n its good] n try removing any viruses that must have found way into your computer. Secondly stop using Internet Explorer coz it's very vulnerable to Viruses.I suggest u use Google Chrome download from here: http://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html Click 'Accept and install'. Thirdly keep your Anti-Virus and Windows Up-to-date.

2. On the Tools menu, point to Pop-up Blocker, and then click Pop-up Blocker Settings. 

=Internet Explorer Tools menu=

If you want to see pop-up windows from a specific Web site, type the address (or URL) of the site in the Address of Web site to allow box, and then click Add. 

=Pop-up Blocker Settings window=

Tip: To temporarily allow a site to display pop-ups, click the Information Bar when it notifies you that a pop-up has been blocked. Then click Temporarily Allow Pop-ups. 

To block pop-ups even if they are launched when you click a link or button on a Web site
1. Open Internet Explorer. 
2. On the Tools menu, point to Pop-up Blocker, and then click Pop-up Blocker Settings. 
3. Select the High setting in the box near the bottom of the dialog box. 

Note: If you want to see pop-ups that are blocked when you have this setting turned on, hold down the CTRL key while the window opens.

Windows xp hangs at boot up.Shows background theme but takes forever just for icons to show up. Using ibm Thinkpad T42. Don't dare use any registry fix, last time it trashed my hard drive.


your symptoms sound as if you have a trojan or virus running in the background, i assume you have an upto date antivirus programme, if so start your pc in safe mode (press F8 key on startup) and then select start windows in safe mode, when you select your operating system, it will load the minimum of drivers and give an administrator account.

Click on this account and then run the antivirus and spyware programme, then restart your pc.

Problem getting netzero download to download computer says need to close i need to close explorer browser sites but none are open


Please note that I am using Windows XP so Vista may be slightly different but mostly similar.

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and open the "Task Manager". Click "Processes" tab and check the box next to "Show processes from all users". Look for the file name of the web browser you are using and here are two common web browsers.

Microsoft Internet Explorer - iexplorer.exe (If you close explorer.exe by mistake, Windows XP users can go to "Applications", "New Task", and type in "C:/WINDOWS/explorer.exe" or Vista users can simply log out and log in through the task manager.)
Mozilla Firefox - firefox.exe

If you use a different web browser, right click the shortcut for your web browser and click "Properties". The file name will be after the last slash ( \ ) in the target box. File names usually end with ".exe".

Click the file name when you find it and click "End Process" but before you do, you are most likely viewing this with a web browser so this window (and all other windows for your web browser) will close as soon you end the proccess. This means make sure you finish what you are doing and be ready for it to close.
