    Hi People,

    Internet Explorer dusn't load any websites anymore. All settings are (as far
    as i know) like they shoot be.
    I dont have any virus, worm or other bad thing on my computer. I think it is
    Internet Explorer itself. A few day ago i had to restart my computer a
    couple of times, because Internet Explorer crashed. Reading email (Outlook)
    or using a newsgroup, like i do now, isn't a problem. I guess that i maybe
    shoot reinstall Internet Explorer, but i think that i gonna loose all my
    settings from 'Outlook Express', my modem settings, etc. Can somebody give
    me a little advice what to do here. Or what i can check before i reïnstall
    IE. Hell, i dont even know for sure if it is IE that causes the problem.

    When do the crashes occur?

    In addition to providing details as to what (if any) error messages appear, you
    might consider that your firewall might be preventing IE from connecting to the
    web. Check your firewall settings.

    Have you cleaned out your cache, history, temp and cookie files?
    (Restart the computer first, then clean.)

    Have you done a _thorough_ scan disk and then defrag lately?

    Ran your antivirus program? Ad-aware? Any screen saver's running in the
    Find Fast enabled (MSOffice)? My Documents folder full?
    Firewall? Norton products installed? Any newly installed programs?

    Here's a few links than may help with cleaning up your HD
    if you think that may be an issue.

    Hope these tips help.
