"HELP!!! I keep getting this popup window with this message:

Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Yet I can still open IE and surf and evrything just like normal. It is an annoyance because I have to move this to the side> I click on the Close button in the lower corner but it just comes rtight back and doesn't shut down anything. How do I get rid of this popup?"

Never mind. I posted this problem to other sites and received some suggestions that proved fruitful, to a certain extent. It was an interesting mete. I was pointed to the Event Viewer by someone that had a similar experience and discovered a periodic and persistent error that synced with the display on the screen regarding "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close...". It was attributed to auttrace.exe and, after several attempts to search and destroy this villain I succeeded. It was a Pyrrhic victory, however. When I managed to remove the auttrace.exe application it left with a "scorched earth" policy reminiscent of a retreating occupation army. When I deleted the program I found the Blue Screen of Death was my trophy. My only recourse was to clean install the operating system. For your information, auttrace.exe has few references. What I could determine from Google.com was minimal, but sobering. It is a nasty bugger that serves the Devil well. Go to http://www.trendmicr...OBOT.MQ&VSect=T. It raised the hair on the back of my neck, for sure.
