Default What is wrong with Explorer ?????

can some one tell me why Explorer will not close properly???

mine, my moms and a few others i know of have this problem.

I use Firefox but Explorer will freeze and will not close.
and has problems.
I am guessing there is a fix out there for this.

If someone could point me in the right direction please.

thank you for any help

What did you mean? Maybe that is a sign to reinstall OS ?

Download hijackthis and post a log, then either Mak or myself will move it to the Spyware section. No reason to reinstall your OS

I never have issues with IE. It's probably due to spyware/virus. listen to Osirus, reinstallation is always a last resort.

Yes. It sounds like a spyware issue or something else. Is the system fully updated?

Use this link:

http://www.techist.com/forums/f51/sp...osiris-165828/

Download the Spyware guide written by Osiris. Then go to this section:

http://www.techist.com/forums/f70/

Post your hijack log in there. Once it is all clear come back if you are still having this issue. It is something else and we will work toward a solution then.

FF crashes on me way more than IE does... so does that mean I can say "its simply open source, that's why it has problems"? Not a valid argument now, is it .

What version of IE do you use? What about browser add-ons? Maybe one or more of them is gumming up the works.
