personally unless you NEED internet explorer i sugest you try Mozilla.
there is "Mozilla 1.5", and "Mozilla firebird" (very trim version of mozilla)
they have tabbed browsing, popup blockers, and are all round good software pacakges.
many people here don't really answer questions relating to IE problems (because there are sooo many) instead a lot of people take the easy route and link you to functional software that won't give you the same issues :P
