Windows 7 64bit

I'm running IE 8. I wouldn't even load. The Dialog window said - IE is not working properly..Quit?
That was my only choice. I couldn't open IE 8 ay all. I could the 64bit ver and Firefox.

Then, all the sudden it worked.

My wife's laptop is running XP and she had the same problem. I think it was either a Cyber Attack or and ISP Issue.
