Now I have just (finally) got back to normal.
Two days ago, I had a problem and had to format etc.
The problem was windows explorer went 'a bit crazy' on me.
By this I mean it would not open 'my comp','my docs' and everything else windows related. Kept saying the usual 'windows explorer has encountered a problem blah blah' ...and will now close!
Then I got the same message saying IE has encountered a prob etc, even though it was not running.
Weird thing is I could open other software, like borland, games etc.
What the hell happened-I had been surfing for hours before this happened. I have a regularly updated NAV running and am firewalled. Dont think I got a virus.
And, if it happens again, is there an easier way to fix?
