PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows XP home edition
Problem Application Name & Version:Internet Explorer
Problem Hardware Make & Model:HP pavilion zv5000
Error Messages:internet explorer has encountered a problem with an add on and needs to close, file: yiesrvc.dll



Hello, I am desperately in need of help with a constant problem I have been having of late. Whenever I click on an icon on the desktop or a link etc. my computer takes a full 5 seconds for the window or link to open, during this time the cursor seems to freeze in that little hand with the finger extended position. I often, while using explorer, get the message that explorer has encountered a problem with an add on and needs to close. I have no idea what to do. Please help as I am out of my depth. Thank you.

You may want to defrag your harddrive first.
You may want to check for spyware second.
You may try to repair your IE.

Hello and thank you. I was able to solve the bloody problem after all: I went into Tools and Manage add-ons and just deactivated the darned things (2)......now it works like a dream again. Thanks for the link to 'repair your IE'. Thanks very much for your reply and help!

Actually a window popped up telling me that that particular .dll was running when the IE problem occured, then I was taken to Windows online crash something or other and it explained how to do it http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=D788C59E-B116-4D38-B00C-FF1D529106C8&displaylang=en

I hope that this helps, as I am a total idiot at figuring things out for myself. Cheers and thanks again.

That's highly doubtful, since you managed to:
1) Find your way on the internet.
2) Find a site (this one) to ask your question.
3) Register to this site correctly.
4) Post your question on here, in legible and punctuated English (You don't want to know what we find around here Wink)
5) Get an answer within reasonable time.
6) Solve the problem yourself, without much of a nudge from this place.

I wish all the people were such idiots. Grin
(that's a compliment!)
