Hello, I am new to this site and it looks very good. I look forward to being a long time member. My problems are quite numerous but here are a couple to start with.
1. Internet Exp. keeps shutting down and asking if I want to send an error report. I usually click yes. I uncheck the box labeled "reload IE" or something to that effect. It keeps reloading anyway. I have to go to program manager and click many times to get it to close. I am also getting the error msgs "IE has encountered a problem and will close" in which I loose everything I am working on :blink: :whistling:
2. When using sbc yahoo browser I keep getting the error msg "ybrowser has performed an illegal operation and needs to close". Also making me loose everything I am working on, including email writing. Plus when moving email from one folder to another, composing email, browser freezes up. I have contacted SBC about this and they tell me to delete and re-install the software, so I did. Didn't fix anything. :help: :) :)

I have run Lavasoft Adware scan and remover and deleted what it identified. I have also run "automatically dectect and fix errors". Didn't fix anything either. I am looking for a free program that fixes errors. I have no money presently to purchase any software. When I do, what is the best software to fix?

Thanks :D
