Default Problem with Internet Explorer

Hi all, My problem is this: After installing and re-installing ie 7 plus ie 7 pro i am getting the same problem, when i try to make a new folder in any window the same messages come up firstly 'ineternet explorer has encountered a problem and must close' after this 'dr watson has encountered a problem and must close'. In itself these are more irritating than a problem but sometimes the errror message does not disappear from the screen, sometimes resulting in a forced shutdown to see my full screen again. Also if I open start and click a folder, my toolbar disappears and re-appears but the folder does not open. Can anyone shed light on this problem. If you require a highjack this then i have the program and will gladly post this? Ps Have rolled back to ie 6 ver 2900.2180 and the problem is still there!!!!

shot in there dark but you run a virus/spyware test? i mean if your getting an internet explorer error message when making a folder in a regular window (correct?), theres no reason to be getting an error towards it. also dr. watson is microsofts debugging tool to internet explorer.

if you can't find any virus' or spyware, i'd suggest downloading a different browser like firefox just to see if the problem is IE7

Don't get rid of IE, you may need it for a webpage that doesn't work with any other browser... I don't know that you can get rid of it anyway, if you can then it's probably not worth doing unless you hate IE that much...

Yeah, getting rid of IE is very difficult since it's pretty much integrated into Windows.

This extension will actually let you open pages in IE inside a Firefox tab:
