I keep getting a box popping up saying "Microsoft Internet Explorer (a yellow
triangle with an exclamation mark) Click YES to complete your download. A
little box with "OK". I'm fed up with this thing keep popping up every 2
mins and can't find out what it is or how to correct the problem. Can anyone
help please? Thanks.

My guess (if on dial-up) would be an 'autodisconnect on idle' setting.

IE, tools, options, connection tab, setting button, advanced button, see check for disconnect.

Easy fix, use firefox insted of Internet Explorer.
Slightly more complicated fix, download install and run spybot.

Firefox: http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

Spybot: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

Why? because Interent Explorer let spyware on your computer, only way
to stop this from happening is to use spybot to remove what spyware IE
has let on, and then stop using Internet Explorer all together, use FF
insted.

You probably need some form of repair

To repair all system files, go to Start/Run, and type: SFC /SCANNOW

and if no help

If you run an XP "Upgrade"setup, from the original, or "Gold" version of the setup CD, and you have SP2 installed, it might go into
a setup loop, and you could lose your install. Uninstall SP2, BEFORE you Upgrade setup from CD (that lacks sp2 on it.)
