Windows 7: Internet Explorer 8.0 stops working

64 bit windows 7
Internet Explorer 8.0 stops working

I have a brand new Dell pc, and it came with Windows 7 premium 64 bit. AMD Athlon II X 2 240 processor with 4.0 GB ram. My problem is that I use twitter and Face Book a lot with IE 8.0 and it will all of a sudden just crash on me. I get the warning that it has stopped and will try and save the tabs. I am frustrated with it. It doesn't matter anymore what I am doing, it will just crash. I check for solutions when it does it and there are none. My resolution chart looks like a who's who with all the red x's on it. yes I also have Firefox and it has never crashed on me. Other than not using the program, what am I to do. I have researched and have never found an answer. I have posted this on many forums and have never gotten a answer to the problem. It's not in the add-on's. I thought that it was some of the add-ons on twitter and I deleted all of them and it still does it. Should I reload IE 8.0 and see if that will fix the problem. This has been going on since Jan 31, after I got the computer.

This is the date that I have on it; Each one is the same for every day that it stops working.

Hello !!

Maybe its just a bad add-ons that is messing up.

Click the Start button , click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)

Have you tried using a different browser, as on my family pc we had an problem with IE8, and we tried a different browser, and now we have no Problems, I would recommend you try Fire Fox or Google Chrome.

I use Firefox and I also use IE 8.0. I multi-task. I use one browser for certain things. Why not use IE. Thats what its there for. So far none of the information that has been provided to me has even worked. I do appreciate the replies.
