I am having a lot of problems downloading stuff. I just installed NOD32 and got rid of crappy Norton. Every time I restart I get this.

What does this all mean? If nobody can help me here, any forum that might be able to give me help?

I get that message every time I exit internet explorer. I think it's a problem with my RAM or maybe the file. It doesn't do anything after I click "OK" though, can you use your PC after that or does it just shut down?
