Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
I have multiple windows open on my screen. This is because when I click on a link on the first window I open, it opens up the link on another window. But when I close the second window, the first window would close too. It would show an error message saying "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem." It so annoying because some advertisements would pop out on another window but I don't wanna close it because if I do that, everything else would close and it would reopen another window back to the home page and I would lost all the stuff I was on with.
www.lavasoft.com and download Adaware Free Edition, and run a scan for spyware. If you dont have a good Anti-virus scanner do a search in google for AVG free. Those two are really good at keeping your machine relatively free of Virii and spyware.
If after a scan of both anti spyware and Anti virus shows clean, reboot your machine and try to open and close some internet explorer windows again. If this is still a problem you may want to find out what version of Internet explorer you are running, if it is version 7 you could try to repair the installation and see if that helps.
Alternatively you could remove Internet Explorer 7 altogether and continue using version 6 if it has no problems running.
Hope this helps.
