I would suggest the following:

1. make sure your're system is clean (from malware and viruses): AVG and AVAST are good free options to clear your system from viruses, spybot, adware, a-schedule are good with malware.. they all should work in vista.

2. make sure you have your windows vista installation updated with sp1, if you haven't done it that may help you with your problem

post any comments after you have done 1 and 2... I strongly suggest to get your backup dones before doing step 2. (just in case.. as vista is still new and still have some issues)

Keeps shutting down my search engines


Whereas Internet Explorer is a very popular browser, you may have problems with it from time to time. Internet Explorer has been known to either randomly shut down or close pages.
This can be extremely irritating, especially if you are in the middle of a project.
Use these tips to fix Internet Explorer if it keeps closing Web pages.

Start by deleting your browsing history.
Open Internet Explorer and click the "Safety" tab found in the top right corner of the Web browser.
Then, choose the "Delete Browsing History" option.
A box will appear on the computer screen.
Make sure that there are checkmarks next to each option listed in the box.
Click the "Delete" tab to delete the browsing history.
Move to the next step if Internet Explorer keeps closing pages.
Download, install and then run both an anti-malware and an anti-virus software program. Spyware, adware, viruses and other similar infections can cause Internet Explorer to shut down or close pages.
Deleting your browsing history may not take care of these problems.
Spybot and AVG Anti-Virus are two very useful free programs that will search for and remove harmful infections from your computer.
You can download these two programs by using the links in the Resources section below.

Go to next step if you are still experiencing problems with Internet Explorer.

Try resetting the Internet Explorer settings.

Choose "Internet Options." Click the "Advanced" tab.
Then, click "Reset" found at the bottom of the box.
A second box will appear on the screen.
Click the "Delete personal settings" option and then click "Reset."
You will need to restart Internet Explorer to finish the process.
Go to the next step if Internet Explorer continues to close pages.
Run Windows Update. Open Internet Explorer and click the "Safety" tab in the top right corner of the Web browser.
Select the "Windows Update" option.
You will be taken to the Windows Update Web page.
Click the "Express" tab on that age.
Windows Update will then check for any updates.

Internet explorer 8 keeps shutting down


Hi,

You can easily fix the issues with the Internet Explorer closing in your computer by checking the reason for the issue. If the issue is caused due to any installed plug-in, you can remove the plug-in from all the unnecessary or trouble creating plug-ins installed in your IE8. If you have malware issues in your computer, you can install a good antivirus program in your computer. Then you can scan and fix all the malware threats in your computer after updating it. The issues with your temporary files can be fixed by deleting all the files in your temporary Internet folder. If you have any file corruption, you can perform a repair installation after fixing all malware threats in your computer.

Can't read or send e-mails,computer keeps restarting


There is a work around to this problem, use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.  You can download them on another computer and save them to a memory stick/usb flash drive.  Then you can take them to the computer that is having problems with internet explorer and install them.  I ran into this problem the other day (with internet explorer)...i suggest scanning for infections with a program like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5756) But the other two browsers (firefox and chrome) should help you out for now.  Good Luck
