I know this is a common problem and have tried many fixes and posted this on another forum for help where nothing has come of it.
I'm sure I can safely rule out the first few replies as they seem to be common ones.
So here are the facts:
I dont use IE, prefer firefox.
Am running Windows 7
Have run Avast, Malwarebytes and the free AVG and none of them have helped.
The notification pops up about every 2 minutes.
It happens more than 50 times before it finally stops and the only way to prevent it is to leave my PC on 24/7. (not really an option)
Any restart and the problem starts again.
I can not upgrade to IE 9, it fails to completely install.
I can not disable or remove IE either.
Have had the problem for months.
It persists even in Safe Mode.
When I close the error message or click to Restart Explorer, all windows I have open are closed. Meaning if Im looking at pics or folders I only have 2 mins if I want to move things or do anything before it all closes on me.
In the event viewer I have 21 errors in the last hour. ID. 1000
Have attached a screen shot from task manager of the problem.
Will also attach CBS logs.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Im trying to hold off taking the PC into someone as Im not sure what it would cost.
Thank you all.
