XPCOM receiver

  paulhicko 11:57 02 Feb 2006

I have had problems loading my browser, email program , Google Earth and in fact anything on the web. I am connecting OK but when I try to call in Mozilla, IE, OE etc they just hang until I am forced to shut down.

I have been getting an error message saying 'XPCOM event receiver' won't shut down. Could this be something to do with the programs not loading? I'm told it's something to do with FIrefox but fact IE and OE won 't load either (or Google Earth) has got me baffled.

I've tried restarting - which works occasionally - system restore and uninstalling all my recent installs but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas?

Anyone got any ideas?
