Hello, this problem only happens on my wife's side of the computer (i.e. under her username). Internet Explorer opens fine, then without warning, after varing amounts of time (not necessarily right away), it closes unexpectedly. No error message. This does not happen under my username. I have reinstalled Java, do I need to do that on both "sides"? Otherwise the laptop works fine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

eddie, I wish I could give you some insight. I got a new HP laptop with Vista installed. I've had this computer since April and it does the same thing several times a day. I have no idea what causes it. I'm glad I don't do anything that crucial on my computer because I'm sure I'd lose it all. It shuts IE off and starts it over. It's very frustrating! 'Hope someone has some idea as to what is causing it.

I'm in the process of researching this problem for a friend's computer. Try doing an Internet search for "Internet Explorer Closes Unexpectedly" or "Internet Explorer Unexpectedly". In the search string you might also add a 5, 6 or 7 after the term "Internet Explorer", depending on what version you have. I did see some issues about installing IE 7 with AVG running, which I think is an anti-virus program. They recommended re-installing IE 7 with AVG disabled. I believe my friend's computer has AVG still on it. I use Norton and am not familiar with AVG. I also saw a comment about disabling an IE add-on called QUICKFIND BHO OBJECT, which someone said was under Tools - Internet Options - Programs - Manage Add-ons.
