    Thanks! It basically said Internet Explorer crashed and that something on the webpage caused it to not respond. That may have not been what it said, but that's basically how I remember it. I have not reset it yet. Do I need to do so?

    Try disabling any add-ons that are not from MS.

    I didn't have any other add-ons. They were all by Microsoft, yu gnomi.

    I am not sure what is meant by "resetting" IE. Normally when a program starts acting up, I un-install it and re-install it. However, I don't know of any way of un-installing IE.

    There are plenty of other browsers out there. I think Chrome and Firefox are both excellent.

    Probably said " Internet Explorer not responding and needs to close "

    Reset would not hurt.

    Clear out your Temporary Internet Files, you could use CCleaner for this.

    Not saying it is the definitive answer but I know from experience it has helped.
