    Hi All,

    Internet Explorer (7 and 8) will open and close immediately under Vista Home Premium. I have tried the following:

    1) Run IE in no adds-on mode. Does the same thing.

    2) Reset all settings under the Internet Options Panel---when it gets to the third part 'Applying Default Settings' it fails.

    3) Run Malware Malabytes in Safe Mode---nothing detected.

    4) Install IE8 (wasn't working back when it was IE7), still no luck. Uninstalled back to IE 7, no working, and then back to IE8.

    So, any ideas? I normally use Firefox and Opera, but there is one specific work-related website that requires some ASP scripting that neither Firefox or Opera can handle!

    Thanks!
