Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

A window will pop up that reads internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close, is this a virus?

Answers :

Uninstall the version of internet explorer that you have installed and run smithfraudfix in safe mode..

Here is the link for smithfraudfix

It can be a virus or if you have a virus checker, i found with mine it was the result of the virus being wiped. i would sugest you down load and install the trial version of Dr. Web Cure it. this is an awesome peice of software. run it and it will do all you currently running programs then run a ful scan to do all of you HDD's. checking currently running programs is a rare thing and usualy means viruses and trojans slip through the net. once done you many need to install Internet explorer again vis windows components from control pannel (xp = add remove programs vista = programmes and features)
