a friend of mine has asked me to look at his laptop. he is complaining that when he has been using the laptop & shuts it down then shortly afterwards his wife turns it on nothing will run on it. I have tried looked at this & it seems to work one minute then not the next. you can't even shut it down properly. after a cold shutdown & it does a scan disk it seems to work ok. it is an Acer laptop running windows XP. can anyone give me any ideas on what could be the problem?
ybrowser.exe is the Yahoo browser which is part of BT Yahoo broadband. If there is an error with this file, try reinstalling off your BT disc, if you have it. If you don't have BT Yahoo broadband, then it might be the Yahoo toolbar, so uninstall this and reinstall it.
ok i have re checked dr watson & there are no errors showing up but i have noticed that when the laptop screws up & i have to do a cold shutdown, when i reboot it, it does a scan disk with the message "one of your disks needs to be re-checked for consistancy. windows will now check the disk" could this mean there is a problem or is that a normal message you get with a scan disk?
