"Internet Explorer has stopped working"

Everytime I log into Facebook, a message comes up saying that 'Internet Explorer has stopped working'.
It tries to re-open 3 times and then closes down completely.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem may be? It only happens with facebook - all other sites are ok.

It started happening about a week ago and at the time I was using IE7. I've downloaded IE8 but the problem still exists.

Any help would be great. Cheers

Have you just started using 'Facebook' or was it ok before these recent IE events?

Have you tried using 'Firefox'?

No, I've been using facebook for ages.

No, have never used firefox, don't know much about it really.

I have recently started using Firefox as I was having problems with IE and I am starting to like it, also been using Chrome another breath of fresh air.

Have just tried firefox, was alright for a while but then the same problem seems to appear - it closes down!

Do you receive an error message of any kind before it closes down?
