Hi,
I was using IE 7and it was acting really weird. When I had multiple tabs or windows open IE would crash and I would lose all right click functionality in windows, programs would stop working I would open task manager and the iexplorer process would still be taking up a lot of cpu (even though the program was already closed) sometimes even task manager wouldn’t work and then I would have to shut down.
I uninstalled IE 7 and went back to IE 6 now I can’t open multiple windows (when I try 2 windows open and none work) and when I exit I get this error message

acrobat iehelper: iexplorer.exe - application error
the instruction at "0x01001ea8" refrenced memory at "0x01001ea8".
the memory could not be "read"
click ok to terminate the program

If anybody can help I’d really appreciate it, I’m using the built in browser in real player to post this, that should say something about how desperate I am :whistling: .
Thanks

Forget IE. Firefox or Opera are quicker, both have tabbed pages. Both usually less hassle than IE, and certainly safer from attack.
My preference is Opera. Best switch I ever made.

Opera: http://www.opera.com

Thanks, but I already got IE working, I disabled all add-ons. I couldn't figure out which was causing problems as the problems persisted if any was enabled so for now all are disabled.
I think I will take your advice and switch I just haven't decided which. Maybe I should take a poll see which is people's favorite browser and why. Can i do that?

You could but in the end it will just come down to your preference. Your best bet will be to try them both.
