I spent good part of the day trying to fix IE - if you have more than one window open (but at times just the one will be enough) the bastard browser crashes.

I am on Beloved's machine - runs on Vista (spit), which complicates matters slightly (because my experience with Vista is rather limited). My machine is still running XP, and I am NOT installing no Vista rubbish on it. I am waiting for Windows 7, after it has been out for a while and people have had the time to fix some of the bugs (well, we *are* talking about Microsoft here).

Anyway. I have done the usual Google search, and the consensus seems to be that it is probably due to one (or more) of the add-ons. Because it's not my machine, I am reluctant to alter things. This is a beautiful, fast and powerful gaming machine, I'd rather not kill it...

A particular clip from Fawlty Towers comes to mind (and sums up my feelings towards IE):

Unfortunately, the only clip I can find includes the interview with John Cleese, but the 'damn good thrashing' is there all right. :)

Oh, and the solution (for now)? I have downloaded and installed Firefox. Which zips happily along with NO problem. :)
