CNET dot com not working?

I attempted to visit CNETs dot com but as soon as the page loads I get the message that Explorer has encountered an error and all of my windows close.
Is there something wrong at the site or do I need to do something to be able to use it?
I am able to visit CNET (as you see) but that page won't stay open.

It would fine in Firefox for me, but although Internet Explorer loads it there is a runtime error thrown. Have you tried Firefox/Opera/Safari yet?

Also, is it reporting iexplorer.exe (Internet Explorer) or explorer.exe (Windows Explorer)?

I had Firefox but it caused a lot of trouble for me allowing spyware - I know that it was supposed to be secure but my anti-spyware went nuts when I used it.
I checked the Help area and I changed everything to fit their requirements but it still shuts down.
I never had any trouble downloading from CNET before or accessing their pages.
I don't know which message it was exactly - it was a grey box that said the generic "I'm sorry but windows has experienced whatever and must shut down".
