I came in this morning and kept getting prompted by Ie? Not sure why. I select cancel and it pops back up. Is this a flash issue or browser issue?

windows explorer has stopped working and when you say ok or cancel it pops back and with the same prompt and does this several times unless you kill it in the task manager.

I always keep my virus protection up to date and on this laptop I am having the issue on since I log in as admin it never gets near the garbage.

just says your browser had an error and is not responding and please close. Never told me what error or any codes?

That was an earlier issue but this is the browser not the windows explorer. IE version 9.

Look in Event Viewer for Errors timestamped when you get the popups.  Look especially for Faulting Module in the Event Viewer info.  
Also Start|type reli|click on View Reliability History.  In the Action column click on any offer (like View technical details)  to provide information .
Some other program is probably conflicting with IE.

seems Microsoft's defender or free Virus was also running. Thanks. You are the winner. I never knew that was there. Thanks again.

You are welcome.
If you are running both Windows Defender and MS Security Essentials, uninstall Windows Defender.  It is not effective on Win7 and it will conflict with MS Security Essentials which is good.

It did and you are 100% correct. I have told several who have downloaded it as they think they need every free virus scan that is made. Thanks again. This solved a big issue for something so little.
