    It all started about a month and a half ago. I couldn't load certain important pages. I just figured I'd done something wrong. I had to use an alternate browser to get to certain pages.

    Now, Chrome is working fine but my IE8 is completely dead. Did I do something wrong? Is anyone else experiencing this? It seems really weird to me.

    IE does some weird stuff. Our previous home PC was shared by four users. IE suddenly stopped working for two of us but not the other two. We never found out why. I wouldn't think your problem is as a result of anything you've done.

    i think i took care of it myself. i browsed in Google Chrome for "Internet Explorer Problems" and it prompted me to check for necessary downloads. I apparently needed a necessary Service Pack 1. I thought I got all the usual service packs automatically, so i have no idea what might have happened. I don't think that I have a virus because everything is working pretty good right now.

    Or stick with IE. A lot of people use it as a positive choice, not simply because they don't know any different. Whatever you do, there'll always be somebody who'll tell you you're wrong.

    No, I think you're wrong about that!

    I use IE and it works fine. No problems.

    (I hope I don't regret saying that.)
