I can't get on the internet explorer everytime i click on the internet explorer icon, i get an error message stating internet explorer has encountered a problem and need to close what do I do

just use Google Chrome or Firefox. They are far better than IE anyway.

Set a new Windows Explorer launch folder When you run Windows Explorer, it always opens to the Libraries folder. That's fine if you use Microsoft's default file organization, which designates Libraries as the overall container for your folders. But what if you don't? You might prefer to have Windows Explorer open to Computer or any other folder you choose. Here's how to do it:

1. Right-click the Windows Explorer icon on the taskbar (it's the one that looks like a folder), and then right-click the Windows Explorer icon from the context menu that appears and select Properties. The Windows Explorer Properties dialog box appears.

2. You'll have to edit the Target field on the Shortcut tab of this dialog box in order to change the default location at which Explorer opens.

If you want Explorer to open to a specific folder, simply enter the name of the folder, substituting your folder name for Folder, below, like this:
%windir%\explorer.exe c:\Folder

So to open Explorer to the folder named Budget, you would type this in the Target field:
%windir%\explorer.exe c:\Budget

If you want Explorer to open to special, pre-set locations, such as Computer, you'll need to enter special syntax in the Target field. Following is a list of three common locations and the syntax to use, followed by the syntax for the Libraries folder in case you ever want to revert to the default.
  • Computer: %windir%\explorer.exe ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
  • My Documents:%windir%\explorer.exe ::{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}
  • Network: %windir%\explorer.exe ::{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}
  • Libraries: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe

3. After you've changed the Target field, click OK. Next time you launch Windows Explorer, it will open to the new location you've designated.

When i go on the internet my computer stops can you help me please Terry and violy Mcintosh

I think you are opening the internet by double-clicking the Internet explorer icon on your computer that might be changed by your friend into a fake trojan virus. Let's see how it is---
Right click on your desktop -->New-->Shortcut. Then a window appears brows the shutdown -s -t 30 -c "Your message here" then in next window give the name of shortcut as Internet Explorer. Change the icon on desktop that is created with IE icon. Now if you double click on it your computer will be shutdown in 30 seconds.
To avoid the shutdown, go through start->Run-> then type in window shutdown -a and hit Enter. It will work

Getting message stating add-on was running when problem occurred

Try going into your control panel & uninstall your Internet explorer, then re-install it. IE7 uninstall can be found in the main add-remove program window, IE6 uninstall can be found under the add-remove windows components part of the add-remove programs. To re-install IE7, though, you need to go to windows update to download IE7 again. This won't be a problem because uninstalling IE7 automaticaly returns you to IE6
