Hello, I am having an issue with my Home PC and was hoping that you could help. Whenever I try to launch Internet Explorer I get a popup that says something to the effect of "Internet Explorer has stopped working, windows will try to find a solution to the problem" Then nothing. I am not completely sure of the exact message as I am at work and the computer in question is at home, if you need exact working I could get that today when I go home for lunch. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
