My intenet exploere 7 keeps closing itself.

When i am using IE 7 after certain periods of time it just closes itself. I get no error report or any warning it just closes and nothing happens.

Does anybody know how to fix it?

It's still a bit buggy

You can check what your Event Viewer says. It may help you research more.

To open Event Viewer, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr", (without the quotes), then click OK. In the new window, check both listings for Application and System, and any with an exclamation or error mark for a time when IE7 closed, highlight the entry, right click, and select Properties.

Or you can roll back to IE6 by uninstalling IE7 in the Add/Remove option in the Control Panel.

I would wait a bit before you expect perfection from IE 7

Not bashing on Microsoft but all things that come out have some sort of Bug (iTunes 7 for window) and I am personally waiting untill all the bugs are worked out to download it. Interestingly enough, IE 6 did that to me quite often on my HP don't know if its a problem with the recycled code or just a glitch.
