This message is often seen on Windows. The problem is such message does not tell in any way what the problem can be. There can be various reasons.

Maybe some add-on for the IE is creating a problem. I don't know much about IE, because I don't use it. If you can, then try to repair IE... or uninstall, and install it again. Maybe that can solve the problem.

Hmmm... why are you even using IE? Switch to Google Chrome or Opera or Firefox. Anything other than IE I would say. Sorry cannot help with the original query though.

Go to Start, Accessories, System Tools, and in System Tools you should find Internet Explorer with no add-ons.

I was not trying to be funny. IE is simply put "not secure". For a more safer browsing experience and a more safe and secure PC Google Chrome or Opera or even Firefox are the way to go. IE 8.x is tagged as "Insecure, no solution" by Secunia PSI on my system even today and right now. IE is something I advice against to everyone - friends, family, and even on this forum.

Yes, but children, he didn't ask what you liked did he? He asked for help with his IE.

When it comes to software, I always look for alternatives and see if they are any better. For browsers, my personal preference is Chrome (for speed), Firefox (for some particular extensions) and then IE (for certain banking websites that are currently compatible with IE), and I use them in that order.

My bad experience in IE was that it sometimes encountered a problem and needed to close, either running on XP or Vista. It worked for a while after clearing all add-ons and returning to the original settings, but it would come back to the same old issues after some time of using it.

Lesser have I had this bad experience with better alternatives, Chrome or Firefox. I shared this experience with some of my co-workers who only used IE with the same problems. I asked them to remove add-ons and so forth. They would come back to me again. My advice to them was "why not trying Firefox?", and they were happy with it since after then. I also recommended a newer browser Chrome to them, they agreed that it runs faster but needed time to get familiar with it. Ok with me.

To me, I would turn to any browser, or even IE, which one day I can find it works the best for me, in terms of speed, usability, stability and security.

Not sure about others.
