In Topic: IE8 not working No WinVista Updates/Crashes

Elise,
I do appreciate the help given, as you have gone past the help I thought would be given, but it was to be of no avail as my PC crashed this AM requiring a full format and reinstall due to multiple damaged sectors. I had a fresh version of XP Pro 64 and installed it and have been updating all day.

I am sorry that with your help I couldn't find the problem. I am sorry too that I didn't get to back-up my files either, lol. Lesson learned I guess. I do not know what caused the problem and hopefully I can guard myself against it reoccurring.

Many thanks and warmest regards,
Earl

Yeah I have done that before I posted here. I am beginning to think this is beyond fixing. I have downloaded Avast again and nothing seems to be pointing to an infection or malware and more like a software issue. I am thinking a fresh install will be in order, but I need to buy an external HD to back-up my files to first.

If you have any other suggestions I will continue to follow any directions you may have, unless you too think it is a lost cause.

The message was repeating the first few times upon opening IE but now has stopped. All IE does currently is it opens a window then times out after a LOOONG try at loading.


I do not know if this is worth mentioning, but before your help, my PC once crashed and when it rebooted I had a message stating my Windows copy was not valid in the sidebar. I haven't seen it again.

Please reset your router. You can do this typically by pressing the reset button for about 10 seconds with the router powered off. If you are not sure how to reset it, contact your ISP or let me know what the manufacturer/model/number of your router is.

Ok, I reset the router and now I get an error stating:

Windows Explorer has stopped working...A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will cause the program and notify you if a solution is available.
