    ie55sp2

    having done my regular windows update, i decided to download the ie5.5 service pack 2, as i do not yet have it installed. I downloaded it and installed it and since then my computer has crashed several times while running IE. Normally after about two hours or so it just hangs my system completely and i have to hit the power.

    I never had any problems with IE 5.5, but why not download IE6 ?
    It's great.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I've heard, IE6 comes with no Java support. You must download it for yourself, e.g. from Sun's website...

    If you had IE4+ it retains the java support, else you can download it from MS the first time you need it.
