[ad]Dear Computer Lady,
I have Windows 7 and every time I am on Internet Explorer looking something up it invariably freezes and says Internet Explorer has stopped working and is trying to fix the problem.
Some times it will show at the bottom to restore session and if I click on that I am back to where I was but most times I have to get out of it and try again.
This is a fairly recent problem and I was wondering if others are having it too.
It sounds like your computer could be infected with a rootkit or some kind of malware.
You could try running Malwarebytes to see if you can get rid of the malware, there is a link in the left hand column of my website at www.askthecomputerlady.com/questions that you can use to be sure that you are downloading the real program.
A better solution is probably to bring it to your local computer repair shop since most malware infections require more than just a malware scan to get rid of them. This is something that I do for my customers on a regular basis.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
