Well, for the past 2 weeks or so, i have been having a random problem with my internet explorer. At random, a little window pops up that sais:


Debug assertion failed!

Program: C:\Program Files\GameSpot\GameSpotDownloadManager_Win32.exe
File: c:\program files\microsoft visual studio 8\vc\include\list
Line: 776

Expression:list erase iterator outside range "this line is not always the same"

For information on how your program can cause an assertion
failure, see the Visual C++ documentation on asserts.

(Press Retry to debug the application)

sadly retry dont work...

Its really annowying, because it just causes all the internet windows to close.
I sometimes just leave it there and continue what im doing (as long as i dont choose any options, it dosent close any windows)

This is basicaly my last resort bfore reinstalling Internet Explorer.

Any help would be gladly appreciated

BTW, im sorry if this is in the wrong forum... I didnt know if i should post this here or in the Virus section....

Personaly, i have got really no clue on how to repair it
and Im pretty sure its updated to the latest version.


It looks to me as though you are downloading a corrupt file, or one not designed for use on your computer.

Are you downloading a file for a game machine of some kind, or a file for a different computer platform?

It might also be that there is malware in the download.


No.... I wasnt downloading anything for any "other" platforms.

Yea, but im pretty sure its somthing i downloaded.


maybe a update of this download program is needed .C:\Program Files\GameSpot\GameSpotDownloadManager_Win32.exe
as suggested when i search for info one it as other's are having error problems with it,
