How do I fix Internet Explorer on my computer?
Each time I try to open Internet Explorer, the window opens and the tool bar is visible, but my home page (or any other page I try) doesn’t show up. I either get a little box that says “Internet Explorer encountered a problem and needs to close” or I get the “This program is not responding” error. It takes several minutes for the window to close. Sometimes I get a message that says “The window you are trying to close is busy.”
Restarting the computer didn’t help. I turned it off, unplugged it overnight, and still had the same problem. Other programs and applications work just fine.
Is there a way to fix this myself? Preferably in plain English!
Also, we have Safari, which I’m using as a browser now. Is it better than IE? Should I just keep using Safari and let IE die a dignified death? Thanks so much for helping this computer challenged Flutherite.
