    Sounds like an add-in. Try starting IE in no-addins mode (Start-All
    programs-Accessories-System Tools) and see if that cures it. If it does,
    then you need to disable all add-ins and en-enable them one by one until you
    find the culprit(s).

    HTH

    BTW, for IE support post in

    You could just take the easy way out and switch to Firefox and probably be
    up and running smoothly again in a matter of minutes........

    Internet Explorer has stopped working and needs to close an
    restart..... Or Close Program.... Please click ok! What a pain! Well,
    found a fix for it and it's very simple...perhaps it will work for you
    I'm running Vista Home Premium on my HP Notebood. What I did was this:
    1)Open Control Pane
    2)Click on Internet Option
    3)Click on Advanced Ta
    4)click on the RESET button at the botto
    Internet Explorer is fixed, just that simple.

    You loose your plugin toolbars but you don't loose any bookmarks...I
    tells you what it will do and another popup will tell you again when yo
    go to click ok.

    Now.... Anyone have a fix for me? I'm running yahoo messenger but i
    the chat room I have no sound. I have sound for anything and everythin
    else...except yahoo chat room. Can't figure this one out....if anyon
    has a fix for that...please send it along to me. Than

    Thankx happy I thought of that after I posted it and it was a java
    add-in that did it. Now if I can get my Axis and Allies rame to run
    right I will be a bit happier.......

    Alex, at the time I posted my comment I think I was running Messenge
    8...then I came across a Vista sound fix and that took care of th
    problem.
    Since that time, I've had to format my laptop...when I went t
    reinstall Yahoo Messenger...I discovered that the Yahoo 9 Beta progra
    had since addressed the "no sound" problem for the chat part of th
    program. So, all is well.

    Just a quick plug too... I also use *YTunnelPro* as a Companion t
    Yahoo Messenger. If you (or anyone reading this post) use Yaho
    Messenger Chat a lot, it is totally worth the very nominal one time fee
    I've been using it for nearly 8yrs now and I highly recommend it....bu
    I use Yahoo Messenger exclusively too. Honestly, It's a waste of mone
    for the casual user but if you use the Chat part of the program a lot
    like I do, it's well worth it. It has many configurable securit
    safeguards that the regular YM program just falls short on or simpl
    doesn't have
