Explorer shuts down

  Manfatha 10:34 31 Dec 2004

Hi folks, Whenever i try & send e-mail, I'm getting a Window popping up that says "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem & will close this program. Sorry for any inconvienience" I use Yahoo Mail as my default mail client and have done so for the last 3 years without a single problem. I recently upgraded my AVG Antivirus to Version 7.0 (the freebie one)Any chance that the explorer shut down might be related? My mail is getting through to the recipients alright, but having to relaunch Explorer time & time again is annoying!

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

spooky - - no help to you at all but this has just started happening to me - - and like you, have recently upgraded AVG7.

Just started using firefox browser instead of IE so will watch this thread with interest.

REpair XP
click here
sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.

This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

Thanks for the responses Guy's, Fruitbat, I would love to be able to try what you suggest but as soon as I hit the highlighted "Click Here" the Explorer shut down message appears & I can't get to it!! HELP!!!

Thanks, Manfatha.

Hi folks, and a Happy New Year to you all! I think i've fixed the Explorer shutdown problem now, as AVG found a Trojan Horse virus on my system and has healed the problem. Thanks for all your advice and responses.
