My laptop is running xp home and the other day it crashed. My husband managed to get it running again using checkdisk and some other stuff I know nothing about, but since then I can only sort of access the internet. I have no problems accessing outlook express and it's still downloading new emails but when I open IE it automatically pops up that internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. If I move the box out of the way and don't click on "send or don't send" I can still use the internet for about 5 minutes before IE shuts automatically. I've tried using firefox but don't even get a window open just the box firefox has encountered a problem and needs to close. Also, when I open Task Manager it flashes continuously and it is blank without even a cross to shut the box, I've tried double clicking inside it but nothing happens. Any help would be much appreciated.
