    Good Morning!

    My Galaxy S2 is giving me a Force Close message whenever I try to access the internet.

    Sorry!

    The application Browser (process com.android.browser) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. FORCE CLOSE


    Is this something I can fix? Do I need to take it to the carrier for repair?

    Thanks in advance for your help!!

    Chris

    This really isn't a fix, but you could always just download one of the many browsers available in the Play store.

    If you are lucky, in my opinion, you will be able to download chrome.

    Menu, Settings, Applications, Internet, clear data/clear cache. Reboot.

    Always clear data first if there's an issue with any app

    Do this then try a battery reboot, by removing the battery and putting it back in and restarting the device.

    I would then suggest if it still doesn't work to download a different browser on the Play store, whether it be, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, or Dolphin.
