Explorer 7 keeps crashing and I have to restart at least 8 times every time I check my email or do anything. I have an hp dv7-1016nr notebook. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any way to fix it? Should I try explorer 8?

I have vista premium, service pack 1, 64 bit. I have McAfee installed and have run a complete system scan. Thank you for your reply. I will try the links you supplied.

...or even if they do help, I'll also suggest downloading and installing a second browser to see if the problem is specific to IE7.. Download and install the free Firefox browser from the link below.. You might like it, especially if it doesn't crash as often.

Marcia222,

Hi, my name?s Feran and I?m working with the Internet Explorer Outreach Team to provide assistance and help answer questions people might have about Internet Explorer.

The Internet Explorer 8 release candidate was just made available last week. It is a more stable and reliable version of Internet Explorer and may help solve the issues you are experiencing.

If you are interested in or thinking about trying IE8 RC1 here are a couple great links to check out that will provide you with some helpful information.

This site actually gives you the opportunity to test some of the new security and compatibility features in IE8: http://www.ie8demos.com/tryit/

The official site provides a good overview of all the new features, as well as answers for many frequently asked questions that users have. You can also download IE8 at this site if you think it?s something that might work for you: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/beta/worldwide-sites.aspx?ocid=ie8_sm_a

I hope this helps,

Feran

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
