Internet Explorer closes

For a while now after i clicked on a few links using internet explorer it suddenly freezes the internet explorer window and an error report comes up saying send report or dont send, then when i click either of them the internet explorer window closes. I have tried anti-spyware scans and virus scans but the promblem is still there, anyone have an idea please?

I read the instructions on that link and it says i need to re-install xp in order to repair IE does that mean it would get rid of all my documents and files when i re-install XP?????

I don't know how upto date your WinXP updates are but I suffered the same problem recently.
I updated about five days ago and I believe one of the updates was for IE, since when the problem has disappeared...better than a reinstall !!

You can try installing XP over the old installation and all may be OK, but for safety make a copy of all your important files. Also copy all dbx files on your computer as these are your emails. An easier alternative could be to use Mozilla Firefox as your browser, although some applications might insist on using IE.
