Could someone please help me? It is realy starting to bug me now...

Hi Killi, Welcome to Geeks to Go!!!
first off you are going to need to update all the drivers and things.

second go to
tools>internet options>advanced>scroll down to multimedia settings and make sure IE any thing you dont want it too.

finally, do you have any kind of antivirus or firewall software?

thanks

this is going to sound odd, but you have both service packs instaled on your computer right? if you are not quite sure if you could post the header of a HJT log in your next post that whoudl be great. IE 7 Beta is just that, a beta, and if you dont have thoes service packs it is quite likely you have corruped something.

try this repair for IE:
A number of XP users have reported situations with Internet Explorer 6 becoming corrupted and reporting a number of different errors. While there is certainly no guarantee, the two procedures listed below have restored functionality to IE6 for many users experiencing problems.

Note: Both methods listed require that the Microsoft Windows XP CD-ROM be available.

Method 1: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x Repair for Windows XP

From the Start menu, select Run.
In the Open field, type sfc /scannow (Note: There is a space between sfc and /scannow)
Select the OK button.
Follow the prompts throughout the System File Checker process.
Reboot the computer when System File Checker completes.

Method 2: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x Repair for Windows XP

From the Start menu, select Search, select All Files and Folders.
Select More Advanced Options and place a checkmark beside Search Hidden Files and Folders option.
Ensure that Search System Folders and Search Subfolders are also checked.
In the All or Part of the File Name box, type ie.inf
In the Look In drop-down menu, select C: or the letter of the hard drive that contains the Windows folder.
Click the Search button.
In the search results pane, find the ie.inf file located in Windows\Inf folder.
Right click the ie.inf file and click Install on the context menu.
Reboot the computer when the file copy process is complete.
