Hi -

Is there any error message when it crashes? Or does it -
- the background fades to white
- small spinning blue circle
- "Not Responding..." - top-right of screen

Do you have an Internet Security product installed, e.g., NIS, KIS, N360, McAfee, etc...?

Check Problem Reports for additional details -
START | type View all | select View all problem reports

Check the entries under Internet Explorer - 2x-click on a line item for additional information on each crash.

Regards. . .

If you installed through the upgrade path then you could have introduced a lot of corrupt entries into your new operating system, and no amount of tinkering will get you to where a reformat and fresh install will take you

Norton removal Tools

Norton usually does not uninstall cleanly use the Norton uninstall tool for your version it will remove left overs from the program uninstaller


Download and run the Norton Removal Tool
