Two IE problems

By patrick-j-kelly ·
I run XP Pro - I use 3 spyware programs that I run atleast once a day: Spy Sweeper Spybot and Noadware. I also run McAfee Virus Scan.

Problem 1 Internet Eplorer will open a page and then shutdown immediately with no error message. This only happens with some wesites for which I am unable to determine similarities that would cause this probelm. Interestingly, if I hold down the shift key only when the site opens IE functions normally for the entire time I am on the site.

Problem 2 After an indeterminant period of time or launching of IE, it will fail to open anything. It closes without even attempting ( as far as I can tell) to open the page. Again there is no error message when this happens and I have to restart the computer to get it working again.

I know I can use Mozilla or another browser but I've used IE for so long I would like to fix the problems.

First of all, if Microsucks cant fix IE I doubt you are going to have any luck fixing it. Anyways, did you try to uninstall and reinstall IE? What OS are you running? If it is ME I suggest a format and reload to XP. Another tip is if the OS has been running for more than a year it maybe worth the effort to just format reload. Most anyone on this site will tell you to just install Firefox and be done with the problem.

Post back with OS & specs if you need more help
Good luck

Try to upgrade the install put cd in while machine is up when the screen comes up choose upgrade. Not fresh install. This should correct any problems.
