    There is problem with your Windows explorer. I strongly recommend that you upgrade your
    Internet Explorer on your computer by downloading and installing Internet Explorer 8. Make sure you select the right country where you live in and the right OS (Windows like XP or Vista etc).

    How to I enable intel? I did a system reformat and now I cant get IE

    Sorry, but there is no such thing as enable intel, intel is a hardware company.

    If you reformatted the hard drive, then you had to install the operating system.

    If you did a system restore, or recovery restore, this does not format
    the hard drive.

    What ever you did, if IE is missing, you need to try it again, because IE
    is integrated into the windows operating system and is always there, so something happened.

    Are you sure its not under the start menu, or listed in your control panel.

    Sometimes it does not get placed on your desktop, so you think its missing when its not.

    Check around, and if you need more help just post back.

    Keep getting that internet exlorer is not responding.

    Tabbed browsing using Internet explorer is like running multiple instances of Internet explorer, and depending on how your computer is using its resources, IE could be taking up the little that is left, thus your processor is overworked, and your memory is maxed out. On the other hand, you might just have a defective installation of the progra, that you could either repair through control panel > Add/Remove programs or even update
    Websites with a lot of graphics will determine how much of your system resources Internet explorer will demand in addition to its required resources.
    Just to add a little perspective, if you have a laptop, with 'an almost full harddisk' and a processor at say 2GHz, 2GB of RAM, and Windows Vista, McAfee or Norton Antivirus, Internet Explorer 6 through 8, Office 2007, Spybot S&D and a series of other programs that are constantly running, you're doomed, because if all those programs run their services, your computer will constantly freeze

    Internet exploer closes after I sign in to Yahoo on windows vista

    Yes, you are infected. Go to and download spybot search and destroy the current version.

    Go through the thing carefully. If you need a detailed explanation on how to configure it to clean out the system, because it will need to be configured properly, then it can get out the infection.

    If it can't, there is another way, but this is the easy way.

    I have windows vista and internet explorer keeps freezing

    The problem is more than likely with Internet Explorer itself, not your computer. If you press Ctrl+Alt+Del, you can start the task manager, which will allow you to close IE without rebooting your entire computer. There's also no need to reformat your hard drive. You can try updating IE to see if that helps, or try using another browser (like Firefox, for example).

    How do i Reformat my computer and what happens exactly when I do that? Is everything wiped off including Internet explorer?

    When you reformat your computer you are basiclly deleting everything...from the Operating System (Windows ) to all your files and programs......there will be nothing on the hard drive when you are done.

    To reformat simply insert the disc , and run through the Windows setup......below is a step bystep guide with pictures to make the process less confusing for you:

    Make sure you back u peverything on your computer before doing this! if you have any personal pictures/music/files/e-mails you definitly want to save them to a cd or USB flash drive before starting this!
