    Following a recent windows update (12/12/07)Internet Explorer has ceased to function.
    Norton cannot identify any spyware or virus problems and a restore did not work either.
    Windows has not come back with a solution.
    Can anyone help ?????

    Download was an automatic update from windows,,not sure if this is where the problem stems from...the message when attempting to start Internet Explorer --- "Internet Explore has stopped working",,,,followed by "Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available"

    Toshiba Equim running on Vista

    I have also "Opera" as a seperate browser but every download I attempt, the program tries to automaticaly open in "DOS" is this a setting error on my part,????

    I'd say yes, if your computer is acting the same as HELPMABOB's. surely, worth a try, can't hurt. Post back afterwards.

    Could be a number of things. Let's start with a virus scan. Download HijackThis. http://filehippo.com/download_hijackthis/
    Reboot into Safe Mode. Run HijackThis. Do a system scan and save a log file. Post the log here.
