Everytime I log onto internet explorer on my laptop, my homepage, Google, comes up just fine, but as soon as I try to go to another site or google anything, I get the message that explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. Explorer was working just fine until I deleted Win Media Player 11 in favor of the older but more user-friendly version 10. I believe that both of these programs run exclusive of each other, yet my problem occured immediately after deleting wmp11. I deleted 2 other programs as directed my microsoft in their faq section, I don't remember what they were called. After the problem began, I also tried rolling explorer from ver. 7 to ver. 6 to see if maybe that would make a difference. None. I should note that right after rolling wmp11, I was able to visit about 3-4 sites before getting the error message, and this was possible about 3 times. Now I can't get further than the homepage. Can anyone help me in my quest of being able to google anything at anytime, rather than waiting to come home to the desktop? I don't know if more information is required than what I have provided. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.
