I am not a computer wizz but have had a lot of experience with computers and I really need a little help. I bought a new computer coming up a couple of years ago now and they had loaded Vista on it for me (which, after hearing all the problems with it, I didn't want). Ever since I got the computer I have had problems with specific programs not working properly and once one program stops working, it causes all the other programs to stop working. For example; if I'm on Internet Explorer, it will just come up with a message "internet explorer has stopped working" then shuts it down. I then try to access windows mail and the same thing happens. I have to restart the computer for the problem to go away but I can guarantee it will happen again once the computer is restarted, I just don't know when. It comes up with messages like 'desktop manager has stopped working' and windows host protocol has stopped working' etc. If there is something I can do, I will do it as this problem is driving me up the wall! Any help would be appreciated!
