    I get this error coming up when I close an internet window after it being up for a bit. and the kicker is the error box won't close. the only way i can shut down my pc is by shutting the power completely off and that causes an abrupt shutdown and that's bad.

    so how do i fix this? tia.

    Hi Scott - sounds like you are infected with spyware/adware/malware, I suggest installing the following applications to clean off your PC (all free):

    1. Lavasoft Ad-Aware: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/ (click on download for the free version)
    2. Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org/
    3. Windows Defender: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/secu...e/default.mspx (if you are running a licensed version of Windows)
    4. AVG Free Edition: http://free.grisoft.com/ (if you don't already have anti-virus)

    Also ensure that you are running all of the latest Microsoft Updates, and I recommend switching from Internet Explorer over to Firefox: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/
