Recently, my computer became infected so that it was impossible to start up. I feared the worst (loss of all data on disk drive), but somehow the computer guy managed to get it up and running. He installed Norton AV and I've installed Zone Alarm Firewall.
However there are some after effects - every now and then my browser (Opera or Internet Explorer) closes abruptly - this coincides with a click on a link or a reqest for a new page. As if a script was causing the browser to close.
Furthermore, I get the following message from time to time even when IE is not running "Script error in Internet Explorer Do you want to continue running scipts on this page? "This coincides with one of my actions. For example, in FlashGet (free download management program), this message appears every time I click on one of the headings in the left explorer panel.
I'm still trying to detect a pattern to this weird behaviour.
But in the meantime, is there a simple solution for this problem?
