    Thumbs up

    I recently installed IE 8 because IE7 was giving me that Message about encountering a problem and having to shutdown. So I thought, let's upgrade! NOT!! Now I cannot even go to my email at yahoo.co.uk. As soon as this page is opened IE8 says it has encountered a problem and has to close. So what's up?? Any insight that anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    P.S. I can get to my mail with Firefox - go figure!!

    IE problems like you describe are often the result of a bad or corrupted addon. Try running IE with addons disabled - Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet Explorer (no addons).

    If IE runs OK with addons disabled, restart IE normally then use Tools | Manage Addons to disable all addons. Then reanble one at a time until IE fails and you'll identify the culprit.
