IE crash problem RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I had crash problems with IE7 "provided by Sky Broadband" (I am now with BT BB) on Dell Dim 3100 with XP Pro SP3.   I uninstalled this - IE still shows as an entry in CP/ Remove Programs, but with no option to "Remove"  .   I have downloaded and installed IE8 which seemed to run OK but continually crashes (with "instability error in website" message).   The title still shows as  "provided by Sky Broadband"- the uninstall and reinstall process does not seem to be proceeding satisfactorily.

    I am now using Firefox for this without any stability problem.

    I updated from IE6 to IE8 on another PC recently and have had minor problems there.   First I needed to transfer my email files and couldn't find them in IE8 so reverted/uninstalled to IE6, then reinstalled IE8.   I can now access my .dbx and .wab form this, but it shows as IE6 not IE8 when starting - rather odd!   I would also like to get rid of the IE8 message box which keeps asking me to join the forum or go thro' IE8's functions, with no option to omit this -very annoying.

    Any ideas on these upgrade and other IE8 problems ?
