Hey Doris, I followed your instructions for the IE settings and I'm able to post here. Prior to doing the settings I went to the Edge and was able to read and look around for a couple of hours without any shutdown. It was only when I came to LeCafe that I was having the problems. After about 6 tries, I was able to get a screen shot of your directions. I followed them and for right now I'm able to post. I will see what happens in the next couple of days. I don't have nor ever did have the Google toolbar. I don't know if the pop up blocker was the issue. What I don't understand is I had those settings that I changed for over a 1 1/2 years and just in the last week, " the IE message and shutting down" started happening. I'm think that maybe an update caused the problems. Your thoughts?
