Windows Vista has a tendancy to make things go a little astray. Here is one little thing that will help to over come the crashing of Windows Internet explorer. Go to start, then to control panel, choose internet options, go to the top tool bar at the far right end choose the adfvanced tab. Go down the page to the reset button push this and wait for the reset configuration to finish. But you will have to reset your home page as it goes back to Manufacturers settings. Well at least it dosnt crash any more.
