Windows Explorer and Internet explorer shut downs.

Unread postby Jon Smith » May 10th, 2007, 2:00 am

After a party a few days ago my PC isn't acting like it should. Widows explorer ( task bar and icons) decide its time to play hide and go seek. As soon as I went online I got pop hell for Fire Fox. AVG found no viruses and as soon as I went on to Lavasoft, Fire Fox shut down.

Current OS is windows Vista home premium. And a fresh in stall of an OS isn't an option at the moment.
