I am using IE8 & XP,& on one particular web site I get this message. On entering this web site I keep getting the message, stating that "a problem with this webpage has caused IE to close & reopen." This problem only occurs on this web site . Why? How do I cure the problem? Note the problem does not occur if I use Firefox as a Browser, but in general I wish to keep to IE8

Clearing the cached data and resetting Internet Explorer settings may help. Have a look at this article from Microsoft giving you step-by-step instructions.

What is the website. Let us know so that we can see if we get the same problem.

Have just tried the website in my IE8 and opens with no problem at all. Have you done what difarn advises ?

Yes, have gone through the total list in the link, including resetting IE to default settings, but still get the problem.

It may well be an IE add-on. Have you tried running it in add-on disabled mode?

Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

If it runs successfully then it will be a process of elimination which one may be causing the problem.

Sorry, done that, first page comes up OK, then I get the blasted Tab message!
