    I'm working on a laptop at work right now, and IE crashes whenever I click on a textbox. It can be in a search engine, or on our authentication page... anywhere where there's a textbox. IE hangs for a few seconds and then closes with the error message. I'm getting ready to check for IE updates, but still, I've never seen this before. Can anyone help?

    Hipster, I'll give that a shot tomorrow at work and let you know if it worked. Thanks.

    Still no luck with this problem. I did what Hipster suggested, but that didn't do it. I installed Opera on the machine and it works fine, but IE still crashes. ??? :confused:
