Hi. I have a dell with Microsoft Windows XP Professional on it. Recently, when I've been working on my computer, I try to go to internet explorer, my computer, and other Microsoft programs, and I get this error message.

I then restart and everything is ok- yet it still keeps appearing about 1/4 of the time. should I be worried? is this a virus? Malware? Or just a file corruption that I have to deal with?

Thanks in advance.

Mike

Yes, I have both, but I'm not sure how Google Toolbar got on here. I can remove that if neccessary.

I had the same problem but fixed it without removing google toolbar, because the toolbar is quite handy..
Here is my solution:


First of all, I went to the internet explorer icon and went to properties, advanced, then unchecked the box that said "enable third party browser extensions." I then opened internet explorer, and went to tools, then manage add-ons.
I then disabled: Mcafee Antiphishing Filter that's type is "Browser Help Object", NOT "Browser Extension." Then go back and recheck the box that says "enable third party browser extensions"

Restart internet explorer and everything should be back to normal..

Try to make as much sense of that as you can..goodluck!! :tazz: :) :)

chunky...thanks for that....i have been trying to narrow down which part of mcaffee was causing this issue....the antiphishing filter makes sense...though in this issue...sometimes it actually is the google toolbar....
