1st: can't open gmail w ie; 2nd ie keeps shutting down

Hi, It seems that you might have installed some addons for IE and now you are in the situation. All you need to do it open Internet Options from Control Panel. Then in Advanced tab, click on Reset. Resetting Internet Explorer resets all settings to manufactures' default and in the process you will lose all saved passwords on Internet Explorer and you will have to re-enter them again upon use. Once done, fire-up IE and click on Tools menu > Internet Options and reset IE from Advanced tab once again from here as well. It means you will reset IE two times, first from Control Panel and then from IE window itself. Once done try to use IE and see the result.
However there are few addons available with Mozilla Firefox that resembles IE inside and opens all webpages that requires IE only. Download Coral IE Tab from:
Installed the addons and switch the view to IE to open all webpages that supports IE only.

Windows explorer keeps shutting down if inactive.

Go into the Control Panel and check out this category:
Power Options - See if your computer is set to shut down or enter standby mode at a specified interval. If you do not want it to, change the setting to an acceptable one. You will have options for time until the monitor turns off, the hard drive turns off, the system stands by and the system hibernates.

Hope this helps,

Slow logoff times

The most likely culprit is a program that is hanging up the shut down process. Before you shut down, close all open programs, including the ones on the task bar.

Internet explorer keeps shutting me down everytime i close or try to download something, its driving me crazy. can you help?

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)
