I'm sure if you do a find you'll see I have had tons of problems with error
messages and Internet Explorer with my 2 month old Dell 8400. Never thought
it was the computer but a Internet Explorer problem. I tried everything from
Chagning DEP settings, repair installing XP, uninstalling Java and
reinstalling it to toggling add ons in IE and finally thought I'd try a
different browser and Have been using Opera for 3 days now and I haven't had
one error message. Better yet is I found it a bit faster then IE. Another
bright side is I read where a lot of the worms, bots and viruses are
scripted with IE in mind since it's the most used browser and using Opera or
Firefox actually lessens your chances of getting infected.. It took a little
fiddling but you can configure to look and act just like IE.. Just thought
I'd update you guys since you've been great in trying to help me out
here....

I switched to Firefox awhile back and haven't regretted it a bit. Like
you, I find it noticeably faster than I. Explorer.
