when working Internet Explorer, it's not long before a box appears saying "Internet Explorer has stopped working" then it restarts, however , if I leave it alone then it's fine. I have looked in Help and Support, but can't find anything obvious so has anyone else overcome this problem
thanks

I find that a lot of programs stop working on vista.
I haven't been able to find out why ether.

a corrupt flash player can cause these symptoms even if not using it at the time.

if not joy delete addons and reboot or reset ie8
