    what version of IE?

    if it is not IE V8 try upgrading to it and see if that helps.

    or you could just switch over to FireFox (more stable).

    You might have a bad addon so try starting IE with no addons by going into the start menu of windows then all programs accessories and then into the system tools and click on internet explorer(no addons). If that doesn't work try resetting IE.
