    I have the latest Opera 9.02, Mozilla Firefox 2.0 and
    of course, Internet Explorer 7 final version running on
    same PC. If needed, you can open all three browsers
    at the same time without any problem. I have transferred
    all of my Favorites web-page listings from IE7 to Opera
    and Firefox. I have heard lots of complains about IE7
    being slow. In reality, IE7 is faster than IE6 or Firefox
    or Opera. Just keep your PC clean, you will be able to
    operate with any browser. (I have not found a way to
    unload the Internet Explorer from Microsoft Operating
    System yet).

    Sorry, I forgot to answer your question.
    Personally, I do not use any 'brand' name PCs
    for sometime now. For a good PC, just go to
    any PC store, buy a good Case, a good motherboard
    with lots of plug-in capacity and memory, couple of
    hard drives, one good Video board and a monitor
    and useable keyboard. Guaranteed, your home built
    PC will last for 8 to 10 years and you can load any
    operating system, i.e, Win98SE or XP/XP Pro or Vista.
    Problem comes up when we buy brand name PCs,
    who always cut short some internal hardware to
    make some profit, but not telling us the buyer.
    Well, as this industry changes on every couple of
    months, your brand name PC will last for about
    couple of years and as you want to upgrade, you
    will need to buy their 'new' PC, and trash the one
    you bought year ago. I hope I didn't upset you.

  3. Raid might be a problem. I'd wait until I found out about that.

    No...it doesn't upset me. I would much prefer to build my own, but I don't
    have the confidence to do it.

    So basically you are telling me that it's my DELL (at work) that's causing
    the problem?!? I'll just have to resort back to IE6 for the time-being...
    :eek:(

    Thanks for your help!

    Guys, been reading this for a workaround, none work! i have a brand new Dell
    E520 with windows vista, IE7 crashes every minute or so and guess what IE6
    cannot be installed on vista, I am having to use opera, microsoft have a duty
    to fix there software, i say keep blasting them with error reports eventually
    they will do something about it.

    Hi,
    This is almost certainly being caused by a third-party program.

    You may have an incompatible browser add-on.
    See: http://www.enhanceie.com/ie/troubleshoot.asp
    for troubleshooting information.

    Installing the latest version of the troublesome add-on may resolve this, or
    the add on may not yet be compatible with IE7.

    The troublesome program may not show up as an add-on. Disable other
    security, privacy, ad-blocking programs to see if one of them is causing the
    problem. Any program that interacts with Internet Explorer could be causing
    this. The connection with IE may not be obvious, such as Google Desktop.

    A firewall will probably not be causing this problem, but turn on the
    Windows Firewall from Control Panel> Windows Firewall before disabling a
    third-party firewall or security suite.

    Try clearing the Temporary Internet Files and History.

    Last... This may be a malware problem- adware, spyware, hijacker, trojan,
    etc.

    Cheers guys for the replys, i have tried removing all add ons ie: google
    toolbar, mcafee site adviser and windows live toolbar, it is still doing it,
    the mcafee is bang up to date as is windows live, the google toolbar came
    with the pc and i have never liked it anyway so was removed after about 30
    seconds, i have scanned my system for any malware etc there is none, i am
    behind a software firewall and a hardware firewall so if anything got through

    Hi Frank.

    Thanks for the advice, i have run hijack this and carefully gone through the
    listing there is nothing unusual found, i have removed mcafee internet
    security and replaced it with windows live onecare, so far so good i have not
    had a crash for over an hour it may be mcafee that was causing the problem
    even though it was a program designed to run with vista. here's hoping it is
    solved, i will keep you posted. cheers pete
