My Internet Explorer crashes intermittently - usually when I am seeking some
kind of information, for example: flight schedules. The homepage will stay
open, but once the information has been collated I get the message: Internet
Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the
inconvenience.
All open pages then close. I have adjusted security settings, gone through
the troubleshooting pages, but can't seem to fix this frustrating problem.
Is there something simple I can do to fix?

Not knowing anything, I instinctively answered...
You're being HACKED and somebody else will get your seat on the flight at your
expense! How'z your firewall?
