I'm on BT openworld broadband. I can connect perfectly,
but each time I go into Internet Explorer (i.e. for the
first time after I've connected) - the system 'throws me
out'. This has been happening for weeks ... is it a virus?
Help.

Error message or not: what you suggest is that

you establish your internet connection:
then on the first attempt to Open Internet Explorer [to a web site],
you get a blank page or
does your connection disconnect?
Once you have repeated all or some of the above, you are able to browse without problem.

If you get a blank page, then it may be a worm is lurking in your PC.

If your ISP [BT Openworld] disconnects you, then call their help desk and have them assist you resolve the issue.

Thanks - yes I do.
I have established a connection & then at the first
attempt to access a web page i get "Internet Explorer has
encountered a problem & needs to close. We are sorry for
this inconvenience.". Then I get the option to
either 'send' or 'don't send' the error message to
Microsoft. Explorer then closes down & I have to re-open.
Help!

Open the Internet Options applet in Control Panel
Uncheck "Enable third-party browser extensions" on the Advanced tab.
You may also have to set the Home Page to about:blank

Then eliminate any scumware.
See
Dealing with Unwanted Malware, Parasites, Toolbars and Search Engines
http://mvps.org/winhelp2002/unwanted.htm

Note that AdAware and SpyBot S & D will each catch some things the other
won't. Also, each needs to be updated with the program's update function
before every use, even when just downloaded. There's also a lot more to do
than just those two programs. CWShredder is also available here:

Alternative download pages for Ad-Aware, Spybot, HijackThis and CWShredder
may be found on this page:

If trying everything at that site does not fix the problem please post back
in the same thread.
