Once my my friends has windows xp. He did have Mandrake for a couple of months like it but missed windows.
He called me and told me that last night he was downloadng some music and that all of a sudden he got some exporer error messages and now is not able to enter control pannel and other places.. Thinking it was a virus he got Norton Antivirus but it didnt detect a thing..
I told him to download a copy of the newest ie but no luck.. Anyone got any ideas what could be wrong...
Try the Windows Update first? Does a world of good. :P
Oh wait. You said, downloading music from Explorer? Like mp3s that are not suppose to be downloaded? If so, he probably got the errors (actually warnings) saying that he/she needed to supply proper ownership of the CD. Another lovely thing about XP (If that's not it, download an mp3, and try to play it in Media Player). ;D
