Swine Google toolbar!

google errormessage The old laptop has been coming up with the rather generic error (left) of “Runtime Error! Program C:\program files\Internet Explorer.exe This application has requested the runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application’s support team” for the past couple of days and I’ve only just had a chance to have a look at it. A repair of ie didn’t make any difference and it seemed such a generic error, I thought that googling for the answer was going to be a tough one. As it turned out, the solution from Wugnet solved the problem – removing the google toolbar and everything went back to normal – very strange. Like the OP in the forum, this toolbar has been on the computer with ie for a long time with no changes that I’m aware of – but then again the google toolbar does have an autoupdate facility that you can’t switch off and it doesn’t tell you that it is being updated – which makes it hard to track down problems when things like this occur.
Reinstalling the toolbar from a fresh download has produced no further problems so this should make Kristen happy again (and me too)
