    Internet Explorer Shutting down

    Does anyone know why my internet explorer keeps shutting down? It started
    doing it a couple weeks ago. It shuts down several times until I just get
    frustrated and reeboot my computer, then its fine for a little while then it
    starts doing it again. Its so agravating.

    Hello,

    You may have a bad IE7 add-on that is causing the problem. This tutorial will show you how to check for this and how to reset IE7.

    Hope this helps,

    I found that IE shuts down only when I leave Yahoo mail running.
    Yahoo mail seems to stop IE from responing then IE shuts down and restarts.
    When I leave my laptop running without Yahoo mail up IE doesn't shut down.
    I opened a new email account with Gmail and checking to see if that also causes the same problem.

    Bill,

    You might check to see if they are installing a toolbar in IE7 that may be causing this as well.
