Hey,
Sometimes, if I am on website pages, for instance here at explorerforum, if I right click on a picture and select 'save picture as' to try and save to my computer, I get an error message that says internet explorer has encountered an error and needs to close.
But other times I can download even the same picture with no problem.
For example I can`t even download pictures from one of my own threads today, that I posted myself.

It only started doing this recently, like wtf?

2 friend's of mine had serious problems with Internet Explorer, and some basic functions in Windows. I reinstalled IE7 for them, and was surprised that it corrected all of the things they were having problems with. Of course, in life there is no guarantee that it will work.;)

If as you say, you don't have a lot of memory, could that be your problem? Also, have you tried deleting the cookies and temporary files?

BTW, Firefox really is a good option to have. I switch between the two browsers all the time.

I have memory, it`s just up there. If I download a half dozen movies without clearing out some room I will get a warning message, or if I try to have too many games installed.

I use adaware once in a while to clear out cookies and such. Maybe I should try reinstalling IE7. I actually realize that I went to a different antivirus program lately and wonder if that has affected me...

Opera seems to work better than both of them, although it's not as popular.
I have been brainwashed by Lord Gates though, seeking enlightenment elsewhere is cyber-sin

how much RAM do you have on your comp? How many programs do you have running at once or in the background? both of these could be the problem If you have several programs running at once with little amount of RAM it will quit out due to not enough "instant memory" meaning it cant open the program window document ect.

I`m gunna check my processes..

I dunno, I have a punkbuster process that starts up when I play COD and AOE so I turned that off, as well as a scandisk utility that is for an mp3 player.
I`ve always been on top of the processes and what should be running since I have tried to keep my comp clean for online games, so there isn`t any that I haven`t identified that could interfere -I think.

it looks like after doing a quick yahoo search people reboot and or reinstall IE. I am not sure if you have tried this but people said that it fixed their problem
