Hello, I recently builded this desktop about 4 months ago when school started, but recently like about a few days ago, my internet explorer keeps freezing on me like every time I am on youtube or surfing the net. Please guide me through and help me fix this annoying problem, thank you!!!

Internet Explorer freezes, shuts down without warning, or the computer reboots.

This problem is often caused by out-of-date video drivers. Go to the Web site run by the manufacturer of your video card and download, then install, the latest (non-beta) drivers for your video card.

Alternatively, you can try the following:

1.Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

2.Click Display (in classic view of Windows XP), click the Settings tab, and then click Advanced.

3.Click the Performance or Troubleshooting tab (depending on your operating system), and then reduce hardware acceleration a notch at a time until your system stabilizes.
