IE stops working with no apparent cause


Been having trouble with Internet explorer and Vista...happens almost daily that it just stops responding and then an error window opens saying it has stopped working, and it never finds the reason. I take all the updates as they come down so don't think I am missing an update, and the pc is only 7 months old.

This has been going on for some months now, and I am just now getting annoyed enough to gripe, and start using Firefox, and do not have this problem with Firefox.

Is there a fix, or should I just uninstall IE and continue on with Firefox ?
