Windows 7: Internet Explorer has stopped working

Internet Explorer has stopped working

Hi, i am hoping someone can offer me some advice.

I have a new laptop with windows 7 installed and Internet Explorer 9 being used.

I have checked various options thats other have posted but they do not appear to be resolving the problem.

Typical example f the problem....

I get an email with a link, click and the link opens within browser. If the link then has a document witin it to open (I think they are PDF'S) the browser comes up with the following message:

A problem caused prog to stop working - it then asks you to close the page.

I have tried resetting default settings i have tried No add ons and the problem still persists.

Any guidance would be much appreciated.

I hope I'm not the only one having this issue. My IE8 gives me the "Internet Explorer has stopped working" message all the time. I bet in an hour, I get the message 6 times or more. Then I have to close it and restart. Is this a known issue. How do I fix it?
