Bummer. Are you using IE8 or IE9. Back in March, you were having issues with IE8 (assuming that the March post and this post is dealing with the same computer).

FredeGail suggested this earlier (via a different link)
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
It does not take long to run and it will let us know if the problem is deeper than just IE.

Yes, it is the same computer, using IE9 for a couple of months now. Downloaded FileHippo Update checker, Adobe AIR needed updating (also CPU Z and Speccy) did those updates. I haven't done the reset IE yet, still trying some things before I do that.

I will run the SCANNOW and report results, I haven't had Yahoo mail open and since I've had browser(s) open again nothing has happened. We'll see if that's a cause, anyway running scannow and then have to start BBQ pretty soon, it's 4:02 pm.

As an aside - in case you prefer Yahoo Classic - you can use this link...

Ran sfc /verifyonly and it found some integrity violations. Running sfc /scannow right now.

The advice that I've seen on this forum is to run the scannow option three times - or until it gives a clean bill of health.

sfc /scannow found problems and fixed them. I will close browsers, reboot, and reply back with results. It might be a little while if there isn't any pop up message just to be sure it is actually fixed.

Thanks to everyone that replied, you all get some rep

Maybe you can open a website like cnn.com (which automatically refreshes) then open another tab and visit Yahoo's e-mail... and a few other tabs to sites that you frequent and let it all stay open while you enjoy BBQ :-)

Thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ, and some cold Budweisers too

Came back to the pc which I had opened 6 tabs including Yahoo mail, had three pop ups with the error message.

I uninstalled Avast! (remembered this morning there was a program update in addition to the definition update) installed MSE. There was another windows update, installed that. Now I'm in a testing mode, have 5 tabs open including mail and will see what happens, I'm thinking Avast! is the root cause, event viewer always shows Avast! WebRep as part of the error. We will see what goes.

Happy 4th of July to all in the US

I turned it off and was typing a response to this topic when it happened again so that wasn't it.

Layback Bear, why would ZAP and Avast! AV be considered strange? One is an AV and the other is a firewall. I have had a paid version of the Zone Alarm firewall for 10 years, it has served me well. It isn't an Anti Virus so that's why I have Avast! free version. I guess I could use the Windows MSE and firewall, it (the firewall) may be improved but years ago Zone Alarm was the only firewall that monitored outgoing as well as incoming.

I will update as I try things.

Steve
The reason is going by memory is that Zone Alarm a while back didn't get along with Windows 7 and Avast still causes problems with Windows 7.
MSE and the built in firewall and the operating system have the same daddy Microsoft and play well together.

Because sfc /scannow found a problem run it two more times with a boot after each. If it doesn't come up clean other things need to be done.
I practice what I preach. I use MSE and Windows Firewall. I also use MAM Pro and SAS. They all play well with each other.
