Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?

I keep getting an error ''Microsoft Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close...You will lose all info''....App name: iexplore.exe. Then my computer shuts down and I can't go any further. I only get this error on my desktop, not on my laptop, and only when I go to my bank site to pay my bills on line and also when I go to Ebay to scan the lists of items. I tried downloading Firefox, but it will not accept Windows '98. Thanx for any help in resolving this problem. Roslyndance
