I can work smoothly for hours on my W98SE Dell Latitude laptop and then suddendly I get this error message:

“Microsoft Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. …..”

Two options are offered: to send MS an error report; and do not send.

If I click Send I get a message that something was sent . (Not that I care but although I have done this hundreds of times I have NEVER heard any reply.

If I click Don’t Send, I get an error message ‘lexplore has performed an illegal operation and …”

Although an annoyance, I find I can just close the leplore message and drag the MIE message off the screen and I can continue to work.

FWIW, I do not even use IE (I am using Netsacpe 7.2).

This sequence of error messages can happen anytime but it seems that I can <always> trigger it by clicking a certain link contained in an email notification of a post in the GeekstoGo forum.

What is this message all about? Does MS really collect all these error reports I have sent? Any suggestions for eliminating the bug? Thanks much. …wdc

As you do not use IE you could consider turning error reporting off to see if it helps
