Internet Explorer Users Have Been Having Trouble With the Browser and For Many It Stopped Working March 1 2011
There appears to be some trouble with Internet Explorer today - messages are popping up all over the Internet about users getting a message on their screen saying:
"Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working
"A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."
There have been some suggestions to try installing IE9, rather than using IE8, but it is unclear if this will solve your problem.
You can also try resetting Internet Explorer, by taking the following steps:
Go to Start, then Control Panel. Click on Network and Internet, then open Internet Options, and the Advanced Tab, and click Reset.
You then have to "Delete personal settings" and then click on the Reset button.
