I have tried everything with no relief

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by frustratedwithvista, Jan 10, 2009.

  1. Everytime I close a web browser I get a message saying There was an error and
    it needs to restart itself. I had been through the trouble shooting for it
    and it didn't fix it. I have done complete windows vista scan and I am in the
    middle of another. Is there something else I can do? I can't ever close a web
    browser if I am working on two different ones.
    I'm not sure I can find this board again if you have the cure you can email
