I'm trying to fix this issue on a dell desktop PC with Windows XP SP3.

Running IE7 opens the program but several seconds later it just closes. I've run spyware / malware scans and made sure the anti-virus and windows are up to date.
I've seen a similar issue mentioned on the forum and the answer seemed to be a corrupt registry key.

Not sure if I need to install HijackThis and get a log from it to get assistance with this, never used the program, but more than willing to do so if it helps fix this annoyance.

Thank you in advance.

Uninstall all toolbars.

Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs. Most common entities are Google Toolbar, Yahoo Toolbar and Windows Live Toolbar. Useless things. Best get rid.
