Noton 2003 Quick clean advice needed

  ray27 16:45 05 May 2004

I have Norton System Works 2003 6.01 on my PC.

When I attempt to run the option Web Tools/ Begin Quick Clean I invariably get a box pop up telling me that it cannot perform the function as Internet Explorer is open and could I please close it down.

To my knowledge it isn’t open (I have opened it and closed it but I still get the same message)

If I restart, it works fine.

If I use the option before I go on the web it functions ok.
Can anyone tell me how to close down Internet Explorer when this happens ?

Many thanks for any advice

It may still be running in the background in which case you could do a Ctrl+Alt+Del. In the Close Program dialogue box highlight Iexplore or Microsoft Internet explorer (if present) & click on End Task. (If another box opens shortly after, click on End Task again.) Now check to see if Quick Clean works.

Thanks crossbow you where right on the button
I visited the link you pointed me to and it appears that the culprit is MSN

All I have to do is use the advance option or close down msn

many thanks
