Thanks for the reply. There are a couple of things in that article that I haven't tried.
But, what do you make of the fact IE works fine if I Run as Administrator? I don't know what that is telling me.
IE crashes every time you launch the app. I get the window that says "Internet Explorer has stopped working Looking for a solution."
Here are the things that I've done to try and fix it
1. Went into Programs and Features, unchecked Internet Explorer to uninstall it, rebooted. Then went back...
Thanks Shawn, I think after talking to Tech Support I'll give it til Friday and see what happens. This activation process they are using now is new to me, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt before I do anything else.
