Internet Explorer fails to stay on top as does other websites.
OS is Windows Vista Ultimate. Cable Modem connected. When trying to bring up a browser or website, it appears for and instant and then disappears. Strangely, Outlook stays up as does Apples Safari, which is where I am now. I can get to any browser or website only through Safari.

Windows Vista generally isn't supported by Microsoft anymore. Along with WinXP and anything before that.
#2 Depending on what kind of connecting cable you have and monitor, my suspicions are even those are outdated.
It would be best to go to a Yard Sale or a Computer shop and buy a used system with at least Windows 7 installed in it. Even then, depending on when it was made it can be an old machine, just with win 7 on it.
I am not sure if the drivers exist. The Graphics card seems old and the last Microsoft OS supported were Windows 2000 and XP. I dont own the card but I believe if you ever installed Windows 7 with the card above installed, you gonna end up with a Microsoft generic driver either from the OS itself or from Microsoft update site. Although that I dont think it is supported on Windows 7, but I would still suggest that you check Nvidia website for Windows 7 drivers for this Nvidia Graphics Chip/Card: GeForce 4 MX460. See if they are available and have them downloaded and set. If they worked, good, but if not, remove them. Please make sure you download the driver needed whether it was a 32 or 64bit referring to your OS installed. Good luck.
open up your internet explorer browser 8 then at the right side or top part of the browser, click tools, click internet option, you will see a new window, click the advance tab at the bottom click reset ( not the reset advance ) this will reset ie misconfiguration.
if you are using a lower version of internet explorer update your browser, you can go to google and search or go to microsoft website for updates
You did the correct order of things. There is a diagnostic file that comes with directx that might help you. Go into WIndows Explorer and find windows\system323\dxdiag.exe. Just click on it and see if will help you. Let me know how things turn out.
