You know what? One can never trust either Windows or Internet Explorer...These 2 spit errors which most of the times aren't even be closely related to what may actually be wrong with the system.
I'll give 2 example for that...
1. I am working on MS-Word 2000. Suddenly, out of nowhere, I get an error message
"Explorer has performed an illegal operation and will be closed down"
I "End Tasks!" and reboot. Again start working on MS-word, again same error!...I just happened to open the directory which had the file I was working with in MS-Word, and I saw 20 odd .tmp lock files. They were crashing my system and the error message didnt even remotely reflect what would have been causing this.
Right now, I am browsing LQ with Firefox and everything's cool....And moreover, I don't need to think twice before pressing the Refresh button too
