PC Tech advice please for IE
In the last 2 days when i have IE (Internet Explorer) running, it pops up the error say it has encountered a problem and has to close. After it happening a few times i have tried to debug, turn off the debug feature, download updates from Microsoft etc and IE is still unusable. I happened to have Mozilla firefox installed so I opened it up and it runs like a champ so would i be able to uninstall IE and re-install it? I have scanned for viruses and have tried to google answers but the technical stuff was over my head. I have seen a few members on here that do this kind of thing for a living so please feel free to PM me if you can help.

My advice to you is to stick with firefox. It took me until I don't know 9 months ago to get away from IE. Now the only tome I use IE is when I have to for certain things. And yes you should just be able to re-install IE. Or if you have your windows disk you can do a repair. I would just download IE and install it replacing the curent IE.
Hope that helps.

Well....here's a link to repair IE.
If you want to remove and reinstall IE, you must download a copy of IE first, before you uninstall it. Here's a link to where you can download IE7. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/dow.../getitnow.mspx You can even download IE8 and give that a whirl. Good luck.Mindi

right now, my pc is doin some real funky things. usually my processor is running at around 30% for each core give or take 15%. in the last 4 days, it had been seriously running hard, both cores are operating at 50% +, sometimes at full capacity for 15-20 seconds at a time! i have 4gb of RAM, an AMD Athlon(tm) 64 x2 dual core processor 5200+, with a 500gb harddrive of which i am using less than a third of the space. i run Kaspersky internet protection antivirus program, and lately it has not been running, and will not turn on. i am going to get into contact with them, but if any one can enlighten me, it will be greatly appreciated

I tried AVG for awhile and my laptop crashed twice do to viruses. I now use Adware 2008, Avira Antivirus, and Zonealarm. I downloaded the free verions from cnet.com. I have been using them for almost a year now and they work great together. I don't like IE cause it sucks but I still have it on my laptop cause some downloads will only download with IE. I like Mozilla Firefox. I have used it for ever.
