    If this group was CLOSED on the MS news servers yesterday, how come you're
    posting from the MS web access?

    If you find that IE8 stops working frequently in Windows, here are some
    trouble-shooting steps you may try:

    1. Run your anti-virus and an anti-spyware, to check for malware
    infections. Microsoft Security Essentials is a good freeware AV from
    Microsoft.
    2. Clear Cache. Or else run your Junk Cleaner or CCleaner. In IE 7 or
    8, click Tools > Internet options > Security > Reset all Zones to
    Default level
    3. If still you find your IE giving problems, close it and run IE (No
    Add-ons). This opens up the browser without loading any add-ons,
    toolbars or plug-ins.
    4. Run sfc /sc¬annow and at the end reboot if asked for. This will
    replace corrupted system files if any.
    If you find it running OK, then the problem is most probably caused by
    an addon. In that case you have two options :
    - Use the manage Add-ons tool, and disable each one after the other to
    find out which one is causing the problem.
    - In Internet Options, go to Advanced Tab and click on Reset tab.
    Restart IE. This step deletes all temp files, disables any add-ons,
    plug-ins, toolbars and also resets all changed settings to default.
    Although this is a quick-fix, you will have to re-install the add-ons.

    I hope this helps!

    Cheers,
    Bryn

    Totally clueless third-party contract workers.

    In a Win7-specific MS Answers forum, a similarly clueless member of
    the "Windows Outreach Team" advised a user to download/run a malware-
    ridden "Registry cleaner" and posted a dangerous, clickable link to
    same! MS MVPs (who are NOT paid by MS) intervened and a Moderator
    removed the offending text from the post.

    Wow.

    If they are third-party contract workers, does this mean Microsoft
    actually pays them??!!

    MS pays the third-party outfit they work for who, in turn, pay them.
