A few weeks ago I installed Internet Explorer 8 and have had all sorts of problems ever since. It either wouldn't load or hung up when I was trying to surf the web. I also use Firefox but there are some things, like loading pictures, that are done easier with Explorer. So after running end task all the time and reporting the problem without getting a response I got fed up and unistalled IE8. It was surprisingly easy, the instructions are here:
How do I uninstall or remove Internet Explorer 8?
Now I'm back to IE7 and all is well.
