An odd message on my computer

I use a HP Pavillion 1200e computer. When I am on some websites a message pops up in the middle of my screen. It reads ''A runtime error has ocurred. Do you want to debug?'' If I hit YES nothing happens. If I hit NO the message disappears but reappears within a few seconds. If I hit NO repeatedly the message might disappear for as long as a minute.
Any ideas?

    I went to the windows update site. It appears that I have to get a code and download some sort of membership. Is that correct?

This sounds accurate, you probably do need an update, you don't need a membership, however microsoft uses something called "Genuine Windows Advantage". That checks to see if your copy of windows is valid before it will allow you to do some of the upgrades. Once you have a valid copy you shouldn't have a problem.

You need to update your Microsoft .NET framework. Do this at the regular Windows update site.

    No, you don't need a code or any sort of membership. You DO need to allow Microsoft to validate your copy of Windows. If you are using a stolen copy it won't work.

Preventing Spywares from Entering your System is not that Difficult.
You should Never Trust a Pop Up that Says your System is Infected or Anything Like that if it is a Message from your Internet Browser. Following are some of the Thumb Rules that can prevent Spywares from Entering your System:
Stop Visiting Websites that offer Cracked Softwares or Other Illegal Activity.
Do Not Visit Porn Related Websites.
Do not Visit Websites that Generate Unwanted Pop Ups.
DO NOT Click on Any Pop Ups that are Generated by your Internet Browser. (ALWAYS Use the RED X on the Top Right To Close the Pop Up)
Avoid using File Sharing Softwares. If you are using them, use it very carefully and Read the "License Agreement" Before Installing those Softwares, as they may mention about other Softwares that are being installed.
Install a Good Antivirus and Keep it Updated Regularly.
Keep your Windows OS Regularly Updated and if Possible, be sure that Service Pack 2 is installed as it also has a good Pop Up Blocker.
Install a Good Anti Spyware like Ad Aware or Spy Sweeper or Windows Defender and Keep it Updated.
Run a Virus Scan using Antivirus at least Once a Week.
Run a Spyware Scan using Anti Spywares at least Once in every 3 or 4 days (If Possible Every Night Before Turning Computer Off).

My screen on my hp pavillion dv 2000 begins to fade....goes white

You have a loose connection on the cable for the screen. The case of the laptop must be removed and the cable reseated in its connector and the problem will be gone.

This can be the result of a virus infection or an infection of other malicious software such as spyware.

Downloading 9.1

no idea at all what 9.1 means or is. IE9 PR1
do not run IE9 ever, run IE11, only.
or bad happens.
AOL 9.1? did you ask them first if it runs on XP
or VISTA. or on IE 5,6,7? it dont.
as them not use, we are not AOL, at all.

NO PC stated (HP Sumpthins.)
no OS stated (vast)
no telling what 9.1 means.
downloading what from where using what browser?.
my wild guess is you cant GET XP to work that it.
as do all XP owners now that its DEAD. and Vista too.

btw IE9 does NOT RUN or install on any XP box , period.

IE9 will run on Vista with SP2 loaded. ONLY
Vista too like XP can not run IE11,
IE11 is the last IE from MS , and is supported even under W10
W7/8/9 IE11 is MANDATORY !@@!

im not smart at all but can read

AOL says, no XP allowed

also learn if XP is there.(you)
most website now are banning, usage of XP
for sure all XP version of explorer. banned
for valid reasons..
