Windows 7: Windows 7 ie8 Problem

Windows 7 ie8 Problem

I have a huge problem. I loaded Windows 7 and ie8 Beta build 7000 in February. I upgraded from Vista/ie7. Ever since I loaded Windows 7/ie8 I have not been able to use my laptop at all. The upgrade trashed my laptop. Whenever I try to start any application that requires the internet I get small window that tells me that "program Name" has stopped working. This includes ie8, desktop weather, Yahoo Messenger. The funny thing is that ie8 works fine when I go to Google URL. So I downloaded Google Chrome and it works fine except for Yahoo Mail. Which seems to be a known bug in Google Chrome. At least I can browse the web with Chrome, but nothing else works. I really need my laptop when I travel so I can check my mail and use Yahoo IM. I am gettinmg really desperate. It has been two months! Good Grief!
Does anyone know of a fix for this probelm? Or does anyone know if I can upgrade to a higher build in case that might solve my problem? I am still on build 7000. I have not had any new updates for over a month.
I really need HELP!!!!!!!

RE:

It was probably something to do with the upgrade. It is a beta build and upgrades with the 7000 build are not recommended. Not saying it wouldn't work, but If you can, I would try to get a hold of a build later than 7044. 7053 has been working great for me. 7000 I had on my work machine but couldn't get anything done, because IE kept crashing on me. Not only that, but every browser crashed too. I would almost guaranty, you try a different build, and everything will be fine.

That's what I thought but how do I upgrade to a newer build?

You will have to search the torrent sites probably, or newsgroups. I don't think I can post links. Just do a google search and you will be good. Also, the latest build right now is 7077, that you will be able to find.

THANKS for the help. I did download the Windows 7 Build 7077. I tried to upgrade but when it got to "Checking Compatability", I started getting a small window saying, "Tablet PC Input Panel Accessory has stopped working". I click OK to this window and send information to MS, and it takes several seconds and it pops back up. I did this for about an hour thinking the upgrade would eventually move on but never did. I wonder if the fact I am using a tablet PC for a laptop has something to do with my Windows 7/ie8 problems?

Does anyone else run a Tablet PC with the same problems I am having?

I don't use a tablet PC but it would seem that it's the upgrade process which is having a bit of a fit. Have you tried burning the ISO to DVD then booting from it and doing a fresh install? This is always the best option as there will be remnants of previous registry entries which may adversly affect your system.

I had sooo many issues with 'Explorer has stopped working' 'Internet explorer has stopped working' & more so i was relieved that a newer build hit the torrent sites.

Sounds like you had the same probem I am having. Did 7077 fix that problem for you? If I upgrade by doing a boot install, will I lose all of my appications and files? I hate to have to reload everything.

FWIW - My Tablet PC upgraded from Vista SP1 to 7000 to 7048 to 7068, and then over the weekend I restored it to factory defaults after grabbing my apps and whatnot and now I am upgrading it from Vista SP1 to 7077....

Oh, and as for IE - I only use it for the MSN Game Zone, and I use Fx for everything else.
