I am having considerable problems with Internet Explorer. When I click on a URL and it goes to the page, sometimes, everything stops as if it is hung up. When I bring up the Task Manager, it shows that there are two, sometimes three, instances of iexplore.exe open (and presumable running). I do not understand why this happens and why there is more than one instance running, because I have not initiated more than one instance. This situation hangs up my computer and means I have to use the Task Manager to shut iexplore.exe down and restart it. I want to know why this happens and what I can do about it (if anything).
I am also getting the problem that when I go to a website, Internet Explorer tells me that "it has encountered a problem and needs to close" (happened 4 times tonight). I don't understand why this happens, not what the "problem" is. Again,what can I do to fix this problem My wife has the same problem on her computer. All of these situations are fairly recent occurrences.
Any insight, suggestions, or solutions that anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated. (Enough to make me go to Firefox)
