I have 2 PC's _Desktop , laptop. Both use W7, IE8,Avira a/v,. Quite frequently, only on the laptop, IE 8 stops with a message: "A malfunctioning or malicious add-on has caused Internet Explorer to close this webpage." This occurs quite often if an (innocent) tab is opened - eg Google Images, or on return to PCA page.Very puzzling as it never happens on destop. Any views?
I have now checked that both PC's have the same add ons enabled and will report back. The laptop is fairly new and had pre loaded Skype add on , and the Yahoo toolbar, so maybe one of them was the problem. Incidentally., a small point but on the desktop, "Tools" is spelt out in the menu bar, whereas on the laptop, a cog wheel symbol indicstes the tools function - I wonder why?
