    Whilst using Internet Explorer or Outlook Express I am getting the following
    'pop-up' with ever increasing frequency.

    An official looking 'box' entitled: Microsoft Internet Explorer
    Then the following: ' Microsoft has encountered a problem and needs to
    close ' (which it never does)
    Then: ' Please tell Microsoft about this problem.....etc '

    And at bottom of box for 'ticking' are 2 small boxes : Send error
    report Don't send

    Whichever of these 2 options is 'clicked on' the 'pop-up' disappears, only
    to 'pop-up' again shortly afterwards.

    Have I encountered some kind of scam ? Will somebody tell me how to get rid
    of this nuisance in plain non-tech language PLEASE.
