I reverted to firefox 3 right away but after reading your thread I think I will give IE8 a try just to see if it is stable on my system.

The only problem I seem to have with IE8 (apart from not liking it) is it seems sluggish loading pages. Going to install Firefox and use that.

I decided to remove the few "favourites" loaded in IE8 from the default installation.I had several instances appear of "windows will now close this program" each time I tried to delete but after restarting IE,I did eventually remove the various folders.Then Win 7 decided to object to my pendrive(where I had saved all my favourites from my other machine)and loaded drivers for an "Unknown Device" I cured this apparent lack of coherent thought from Win 7 by inserting the pendrive into a different USB port after rebooting and it picked up the pendrive effortlessly.

i think i have narrowed the problem to one of the additional updates rolled the system back prior to the updates and ie 8 is back now in the process of instaling them one by one to see which if any is causing the problem money at the moment on the network card though i use wireless
