I have googled my problem, but other's solutions did not work for me. Everytime I try to reply and paste into a post, internet explorer quits working, and has to restart.Try installing Internet Explorer 8. It came out recently. There might be a missing or corrupt file that a new install would fix. If you don't want IE8, you can still download and re-install IE 7. They are both available at http://www.microsoft.com.
Also try downloading and running the registry cleaner program I linked to in an earlier post.
I would also recommend Firefox. It usually works much better than IE with few exceptions. The only problems I've ever had with Firefox are when a web site uses proprietary Microsoft extensions to add extra features to their web site, thereby breaking the web site for Firefox and other browsers, including on the Mac and in Linux computers. Web site designers should stick to industry wide standards, not proprietary ones, but that is another issue. Firefox is here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/. I wholeheartedly recommend the Thunderbird email program at the same place too.
If your computer is new enough (purchased June 26 or later), you may be able to get the upgrade to Windows 7 for free. Go to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/buy/offers/upgrade.aspx to find out. Click on your brand and it'll direct you to the manufacturer's upgrade instructions.
