Default Internet Explorer

IE would hang up and i would get this :

Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Now when i start my computer it pops up and i cant use IE at all. When i click 'Dont Send' i get a 'Server Busy...' then when i hit Retry i get a script error.

I can get rid of it when I do a System Restore, but it's only good for a couple of days and then it happens again.

Help! anyone?

Hi,

Here are a few things you can try if you haven't already.

Go to Control Panel/Add/Remove programs
Find IE in the list and click "Change/Remove"
Choose "Repair" from the dialog and run through the process
Note that "sometimes" IE doesn't appear in the Add/Remove Panel.

Failing that...

Go to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/...s/default.mspx
and download/install IE over itself and see if that sorts it out.

Or if you are due to upgrade - use the Windows Update link to upgrade to the latest version.

Failing that...

Take this as a sign that it's time to try/use a "better" browser.
Go to http://www.mozilla.org/ and download/install either Firefox 0.9.1 or Mozilla 1.7 and use one or the other.

I don't think, in the long run you will be disappointed with either.

Built in popup blocker
Tabbed browsing
Stability
many more nice features

Sorry I can't be any more help than that -IE is a quirky bugger sometimes.

Good luck
Daf

Good for you!

Once you download it... go to Edit/Preferences and set it the way you want it. You'll need to enable the popup blocker.

Also check out the "Tabbed Browsing" - that's a great feature as well.

I think you will find that it's a faster internet experience as well.
