    Which explorer? Try re-installing the version you have, or upgrade to 8. Have you made and recent changes or additions to your system? Could be a virus that targets IE. Other than that no idea.

    No specific suggestions other than the general ones of hit the M$ update thing for M$ updates and Google for any Google toolbar updates. If it's at all a common problem someone will already have suffered from it.

    It's a real shock to the system when you discover that you really are the first person in the world to exercise a particular bug

    Perhaps a virus got past your antivirus soft?

    Try this virus removal tool, see if it finds anything.

    Reset all Internet Explorer addons, may be one is corrupted.

    I've seen dying memory or video card cause quirks, but usually carry over to other programs, not just 1.

    I think it is actually a Microsoft problem, it happens to me at least 4-6 times a day along with a lot of other Microsoft things going sideways.

    I am no expert on this, if you recently updated to IE8, you may well need to update your Google toolbar.

    Hello,
    Had lots of problems with IE 8 and went back to seven. Att dsl support told me to stay away from 8 because of problems.

    I downloaded IE8 at M$ suggestion and it never worked again. I tried to delete it and go back to IE7 and it still would not work. Talked to a Windows tech and he said I would probably have to format the drive and start over because it probably lost some of the registry. I deleted IE completely as I could and have been using Google Chrome since then and it works way better than IE ever did. A friend had to email Firefox and Google because I couldn't even get on the internet then but I could get emails.

    I have Firefox and Google Chrome but use Google all the time.

    I guess it's hit and miss. Works for some and won't for others.

    Google toolbar is bringing it down. c0000005 is the code for a general protection fault. Probably it's calling some function not present in the IE8 API. Update google toolbar or uninstall it. It doesn't do anything remotely useful IMO anyway.

    That is probably why I'm not having any problems. I never load any of that BS.
