Win 7, 32bit, Premium
 
 

Also, check the Event Viewer in the Control Panel and post a screen shot for us. Did you do a scan with your antivirus ?

What version of IE ?

May also want to uninstall IE from Windows Installed Updates and reinstall or reset IE (Internet Options/Advanced/Reset)


Maybe your son has the laptop "Parent-Proofed"
